bioRxiv  |  bioRxiv.org

bioRxiv (pronounced “bio-archive”) is a free online archive and distribution service for unpublished preprints in the life sciences.  By posting preprints on bioRxiv, authors make their findings immediately available to the scientific community and can receive feedback
on draft manuscripts before they are submitted to journals.

Manuscripts are not peer-reviewed, edited, or typeset before being postedonline.  A manuscript may be posted prior to, or concurrently with, submission to a journal but not if it has been accepted and given a journal DOI or published. Once posted, manuscripts have a preprint DOI and are citable.  Authors may submit a revised version of a manuscript to bioRxiv at any time prior to publication in a journal.

bioRxiv is operated by Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory, a not-for-profit research and educational institution. Follow @biorxivpreprint on Twitter.

CASRAI CRediT  |  www.credit.casrai.org


CASRAI Partner logo

CASRAI is an international nonprofit membership initiative led by research institutions and their partners. Our mission is to adapt the principles and best practices of open standards and data governance to lead and facilitate key stakeholders in annual deliberations to develop ‘standard information agreements’ that serve as bridges between research information users.

CASRAI oversees the CRediT taxonomy. Project CRediT originated at a May 2012 workshop, co-hosted by the Wellcome Trust and Harvard University, which brought together those interested in exploring contributorship and attribution models. This meeting spawned a working group charged with developing a controlled vocabulary of roles that could be used to describe typical research “contributions”. The group tested its draft taxonomy with corresponding authors publishing across science disciplines. The outcomes of the pilot test are described in this Nature commentary (April 2014).

The Project CRediT taxonomy consists of the following 14 contribution types to scholarly work, along with guidelines on how these roles may be assigned. The CRediT taxonomy will be integrated with Editorial Manager version 13.0.
