The importance of authorship contracts in multicentre trials (including access to free templates)

An article in the Danish Medical Journal this week discusses the importance of establishing rules for authorship in multicentre trials. These trials may involve up to hundreds of contributors, but ultimately only a few will eventually co-author the final publication – and will meet the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors (ICMJE) criteria for authorship.

The article also very helpfully provides two freely available author contract templates. These templates can be accessed via the original article, or below.
