Author(s):Zhang, Yingyi; Lu, Chao; Zhang, Chengzhi
Subject(s):authorship contributions
corresponding author
Abstract:Corresponding author (C-Au) holds an important position in byline order. Some papers have analyzed the contribution of C-Au, but they do not consider the variation in different byline order. Furthermore, some studies use ques-tionnaire and found that people perception on other authors’ contribution would be influence by the byline order of C-Au, but the real situation remains unclear. Thus, this poster aims to analyze two questions: (1) What kind of byline order do C-Au have and are their contribution influenced by their by-line order? (2) Are other authors contributions influenced by the byline order of C-Au? Three main findings emerge: firstly, the last author are not always to be C-Au; following with the decline of byline order of C-Au, the contribution of C-Au deceases; finally, as the byline order of C-Au changes, other authors’ contribution change significantly. For instance, second author has the lowest contribution when the last author is C-Au.
