Being listed as an author on a published article is one of the main goals of scientific research. Each listed author had a significant role to play in a study and has responsibility for the work presented; however, journals are now starting to ask for an author to be named the overall "guarantor" of the paper. It can be a bit confusing to differentiate the role of an ordinary author vs the corresponding author vs a guarantor, so today we take a look at these key authorship roles and try and make sense of each of their responsibilities and who to list for each category on the manuscript.
On 17 March 2017, Dr Andrew Jackson (Senior Editor) and Ms Ayli Chong (Editor and Project Coordinator) from Edanz Group conducted a one-day training session for PhD students and early-career researchers in English presentation skills.
By popular demand, Edanz Group was invited back to Hokkaido University, Sapporo, Japan, in March 2017 to conduct individual consultations to help researchers improve their manuscript writing.
Edanz Group was recently in Okayama, Japan, giving a two-day workshop in efficiently and critically reading academic research papers. Dr Trevor Lane and Dr Kate Harris, who have both worked for indexed international journals, gave hints and tips to two audiences at Okayama University.
Ten early-career research staff at Hokkaido University, Sapporo, Japan, received individualized advice to improve their presenting skills at an Edanz workshop on 24 February 2017.
