Role play

Imagine you are attending a full team meeting to discuss who will be an author, and in what order, on a paper resulting from this project. 

1.    Role playing your character, decide as a group which members of the team should be authors on the article. Refer to the ICMJE guidelines which state that authors are expected to meet all four essential authorship criteria:

i. Substantial contributions to the conception or design of the work; or the acquisition, analysis, or interpretation of data for the work;

ii. Drafting the work or revising it critically for important intellectual content;

iii. Final approval of the version to published; and

iv. Agreement to be accountable for all aspects of the work in ensuring that questions related to the accuracy or integrity of any part of the work are appropriately investigated and resolved.

2.    Role playing your character, negotiate what the authorship order should be.
