Research Skills: Attribution and Co-authorship

Attribution and co-authorship skills required of excellent PhD or doctoral students

Cloud created by:

12 November 2010

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
