- RES-12.1: Authorship
- Frequently asked questions
The University's Authorship Policy RES-12 outlines the obligations of research authors and should be read in conjunction with this section.
The outcomes of research may be disseminated in a variety of ways but enduring forms, such as journal articles, are particularly important and to be an author for such a form is meritorious. To be named as an author, a researcher must have made a substantial scholarly contribution to the work and be able to take responsibility for at least that part of the work they contributed.
Under the Australian Code for the Responsible Conduct of Research (2007) the University has established procedures to resolve conflicts arising through disputes about authorship (refer Authorship Policy)
