Authorship Policy

Overview:

The University of Adelaide has adopted the principles embodied in the 2018 Australian Code for the Responsible Conduct of Research via its Responsible Conduct of Research Policy. This includes the responsibilities of all researchers for the fair, honest and transparent attribution of authorship in research outputs. This Policy is designed to promote good practice, ensure University compliance with the Code, and is informed by the Code Authorship Guide 2019. It is also consistent with the authorship criteria of the internationally recognised International Committee of Medical Journal Editors.
