A recent topic that was raised by the community was the best way to reflect authorship of publications; this was discussed in the most recent management meeting.

As a rule of thumb we suggest:

  *   Research contributions about the community in general should use the Contributor Roles ontology* to capture contributor roles to the work

Research contributions about a specific profile/specification should list the contributors of the profile, as defined ultimately by the lead/editor, and may consider the wider group members. Again we suggest the use of the Contributor Roles ontology*
For outreach papers we suggest that the person presenting is listed as the first author, perhaps with other named authors if there are individuals who have provided significant contributions, and then either the whole community acknowledged or the specific group if the focus is on a particular profile

For outreach papers we mean abstracts, posters, and workshop submissions to events such as UKON, ESWC, ECCB. Research contributions would be peer reviewed journal articles.

We welcome further discussion and feedback about this proposal.

Best regards

Alasdair, Carole, and Rafa

*The Contributor Role ontology (CRediT<http://docs.casrai.org/CRediT> http://docs.casrai.org/CRediT) is a way to articulate the involvement of an individual. Based on this, you should be able to decide if they have played a role that is worthy of authorship on the paper.
