Authorship

Authors are responsible for the intellectual content of their manuscripts. Based on this, anyone listed as an author of a manuscript must have substantially contributed to its intellectual content, and anyone who has substantially contributed to the intellectual content of a manuscript must be listed as its author.

Substantial contribution may consist in the following activities:

  1. formulating hypotheses or other important ideas contained in the manuscript;
  2. formulating a theory defended in the manuscript;
  3. providing arguments for ideas discussed in the manuscript;
  4. acquiring data, case studies and other kinds of (empirical) evidence used in the manuscript;
  5. interpreting and analyzing data, case studies and other kinds of (empirical) evidence with respect to the ideas discussed in the manuscript;
  6. providing conceptual analyses, thought experiments and other (non-empirical) evidence used in the manuscript;
  7. proving theorems contained in the manuscript;
  8. creating the manuscript or revising it by adding important intellectual content.

Other contributors that do not meet the above conditions for authorship should be listed in the acknowledgements. It is expected that anyone given credit in the acknowledgements has given his or her permission to be named.

All authors of a manuscript must:

  1. approve of the version that is submitted to Organon F;
  2. take responsibility for the content of the manuscript that is submitted to Organon F;
  3. agree to the consideration of the manuscript for publication in Organon F;
  4. agree to the publication of the manuscript (or an appropriately revised version of it) in Organon F, should the manuscript be accepted;
  5. approve of the final version of the manuscript that is published in Organon F;
  6. take responsibility for the content of the final version that is published in Organon F.

The above conditions for authorship exclude awarding authorship to “gift authors”, i.e. those who are listed in return for (financial or other) benefits, and “guest authors”, i.e. those who are listed because of their reputation or relationship. The use of “ghost authors”, i.e. those who meet the above conditions for authorship but are not listed, is also prohibited.

In order to prevent the listing of “gift” and “guest” authors, and to avoid the use of “ghost” authors, editors reserve the right to ask corresponding authors to describe each author’s contribution to the work in cases where there are several authors and reasonable doubts arise regarding their respective contributions.
