All pre-conference workshops required separate registration. That registration process is now CLOSED and this workshop is full.  

An interactive session to explore next steps for the CRediT taxonomy.  CRediT is a linked data initiative that allows author contribution(s) to scientific papers to be specified, transparent, and present in the article XML (http://docs.casrai.org/CRediT).  CRediT has been adopted by over 100 journals, yet implementations vary widely.  To further engagement with the scholarly community, and identify next steps for CRediT, this workshop will:
  • Start with an overview of CRediT and how it works, including: author, publisher, integrator perspectives; ethical issues; and barriers to adoption.  
  • Use live online polls to gather participant opinions, conduct thought experiments, and identify topics for breakout groups
  • Use Breakout Groups to identify innovations and next steps.  Topics to be determined by participants, and might include: implementation and barriers, ethical issues, usefulness, and application in non-science disciplines
  • Share results from breakout groups  (both during the workshop and after)
