New article: Percentage-based Author Contribution Index



Percentage-based Author Contribution Index: a universal measure of author contribution to scientific articles:


Thanks Holly!
I wonder whether this is a case of spurious accuracy…? It will be interesting too see what the experience is of the ecology journal that is trialling it.


Might be worth reaching out.



Any dialogue on author attribution is welcome. Does anyone know anyone at Rethinking Ecology, ?

has some more info on the Author Contributor Index (ACI)


It’s an interesting approach. I wonder if it’s just the new ecology journal or something that Pensoft journals are all thinking about. I don’t know anyone there…

Also, I noted that they are not tagging the contributions in their XML – at least I couldn’t find it.
