Authorship Agreement Guidelines

 

 

The guidelines for authorship on any publication or presentation, poster or paper, resulting from research or other thesis/project are as follows.  The investigator or primary author of the thesis/project (student) will retain first authorship on all written or oral presentations with the following exception.  If the student does not develop and submit a manuscript for publication or present the findings of the project or research within one year of the completion of the work, the major professor, named here _____________________ has the prerogative to develop and submit the manuscript as well as determine authorship (ie. first, second, etc.) for the manuscript. Additional authors are normally reserved for other committee members and consultants depending upon their contributions to the thesis/project.
