Webinar Overview:
The recommendations of the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors (ICMJE) are the industry standard for determining authorship. ICMJE criterion #1 is the basis for author selection as it refers to contributors to the research – prior to the initiation of the publication. Interpretation of ICMJE criterion #1 varies within and between companies, resulting in inconsistent author decisions and disputes.

This presentation will discuss industry-wide challenges in author selection. Representatives of the ISMPP Authorship Algorithm Taskforce will unveil recommendations to standardize the interpretation of ICMJE criterion #1 and discuss next steps for adoption.

At the end of this session, participants should be able to:
  • Discuss challenges impacting author selection for company-sponsored research
  • Review the mission, vision, goals and accomplishments of the ISMPP Authorship Algorithm Taskforce
  • Discuss the interpretation of ICMJE criterion #1 to inform author selection
  • Identify next steps in the implementation of the recommendations
