In a published paper, the credit for authorship should be based on substantial contribution in conducting the study and preparation of the manuscript. Co-PI in a project or Co-Supervisor in a Master or PhD work are insufficient to claim authorship. The author order of article should be based on the relative contribution in the research. To make it clear, Update Publishing demands a written statement about “Author’s Contribution” at the end of article before Reference Section.
Before submitting to the journal, the corresponding author should seek permission from all co-authors of the study. After final acceptance, it will not be possible to change the author order.
