The URPP on Global Change and Biodiversity places particular emphasis on the career advancement of its junior members.
Career and Equal Opportunities Committee (CEOC)
CEOC's goal is to promote a gender-neutral and diverse culture where all individuals can thrive and be justly acknowledged for their contribution.
Fairness in authorship
With the number of co-authors increasing, the actual contributions of authors become more variable, blurring the lines between acknowledgement and co-authorship.
While criteria for authorship and lists of contributing tasks can largely be determined at the onset of a research project, the actual research process may lead to differences between foreseen and actual contributions, which highlights the utility of keeping track of team member contributions during the research process.
The Career and Equal Opportunities Committee, with valuable contribution of URPP GCB members, designed a process to ensure fairness in authorship.
