Departmental authorship code of practice
The code of practice outlined here has been drawn up to set out the Department's position on authorship of any research publications and other academic outputs (e.g. conference proceedings) that arise from departmental research projects involving departmental staff collaborating with colleagues both internally and externally. It also covers any research publications/academic outputs, including those with undergraduate and postgraduate students. The code of practice also sets out the processes for managing any authorship disputes that may arise.
All members of academic staff and students are advised to make themselves familiar with this document before starting any collaborative research projects and should reach agreement on the terms of this code of practice in advance and on specific points that it includes.
