Welcome to Authorship Ethics.

The purpose of this Online Supplement (OS) is to foster and support ethical authorship practices in the context of health professions education and scholarship. 

We will introduce the authorship guidelines used by most leading health professions journals.  We will then explore their limitations and how factors such as culture, power, and relationships  can complicate the application of these guidelines in practice.  Throughout this OS you will  encounter activities to support your understanding and practical tools to support your education practice.
