Biological Sciences: Fair attribution and publishing for technicians

Fri 19 Apr 2024


Fair attribution for technicians through either co-authorship or direct acknowledgement in research publications is a key component of the ‘visibility’ and ‘recognition’ areas of the Technician Commitment, of which the University of Cambridge was a founding signatory in 2017.

However, there is currently no policy or standard practice for acknowledging the role of technicians, equipment and facilities in the University or the wider sector. Technicians experience a great disparity in their recognition and visibility in scholarly outputs.

This interactive workshop, organised by the Biological Sciences Libraries Team, will introduce you to the scholarly communications process as well as tools such as CRediT and ORCID, and facilitate conversation amongst peers.

Target audience

Technicians in the School of Biological Sciences, in particular those who are involved in or support research in the University.

The workshop is open to technicians at any grade or level and you don’t have to have the word ‘technician’ in your job title! We are keen to have a mixture of participants who have experience of authorship or acknowledgement in publications as well as those who don’t yet.
