An excellent researcher at doctoral or PhD level:
- Understands concept of attribution and applies it consistently and fairly to appropriately recognise contributions and co-authorships. Seeks advice on local codes of conduct.
Looking ahead, a doctoral student can aim to become an excellent early-career researcher who:
- Advises peers and less experienced researchers on bibliometrics and citation practice.
Note: These skills are identified in the UK Researcher Development Framework – where they appear as C1.6 Professional Conduct: Attribution and Co-authorship
