Authorship Policy

The  Authorship on Scientific and Scholarly Publications Policy was initiated by members of the Health Sciences Leadership Council (HSLC Members: Giovanni Piedimonte, Chair; SVP and Provost Robin Forman; SVP and SoM Dean Lee Hamm; SPHTM Dean Thomas LaVeist; SSE Dean Kimberly Foster; SSW Dean Patrick Bordnick; and TNPRC Director Jay Rappaport) to provide guidance for all Tulane authors.

The draft policy that was developed by HSLC members was distributed to the Office of the General Counsel (Victoria Johnson) and all additional School Deans (School of Architecture Dean Iñaki Alday, SOPA Dean Suri Duitch, SLA Dean Brian Edwards, School of Business Dean Paulo Goes, Newcomb-Tulane College Interim Dean J. Celeste Lay, and School of Law Dean Davis Meyer) for review, comment, and approval. Further review, comment, and approval came from the Senate Committee on Research (2022 – 2023 CoR) members (Professors Kevin Callison, Cynthia Ebinger, Ronald Scalise, Mark VanLandingham, Justin Wolfe, and Andrea Zsombok). The final version was submitted for approval by the University Senate and received Senate approval December 4, 2023.
