Authorship and other forms of academic credit are of course important for our career advancement.

Can you take a couple minutes to fill out our authorship survey?

Then join us for our monthly campus membership meeting where we’ll discuss disputes around academic credit, and strategies to make improvements in this area.

Lunch will be provided!
