A connected culture of collaboration: recognising and understanding its value for research




From the post:

Since its launch in 2014, there has been considerable support for CRediT’s pragmatic way to provide transparency and discoverability to research contributions, and importantly build this into the scholarly communication infrastructure at minimal effort to researchers. The standards organisation, CASRAI (Consortia Advancing Standards in Research Administration), is the custodian of the CRediT taxonomy, and many organisations are already using the taxonomy. In 2016 PLOS implemented the CRediT taxonomy for authors across all its journals; Cell Press have endorsed the use of the roles amongst their ‘authors’; Aries Systems includes the taxonomy in its Editorial Manager manuscript submission system; and F1000 are implementing the taxonomy across their open research publishing platforms during 2017.
