Authorship Policy
Home   ►   Policies   ►   Authorship


We encourage transparent and authentic authorship of submitted content for publishing in AJER. All the enlisted authors must meet our Authorship Criteria and should be responsible for the content of the manuscript submitted for publishing.

Upon receiving the manuscript, the editorial staff double- check with all of the authors and contributors to ensure that they are aware of and approve the submitted manuscript for processing in AJER. It is mandatory for all authors, including those removed from the list, to approve the submitted and accepted versions of the publication.

Author Contributions

The contributions of all authors must be enlisted at the time of submission. AJER has adopted the CRediT Taxonomy formulated during a joint workshop between Harvard University and the Wellcome Trust and a pilot led by Cell Press’s Gabriel Harp, to help identify each author's contribution to the work. The level of contributions will also be published with the final article.
