The goals of this policy include:

  1. To provide equitable opportunities for authorship and appropriate acknowledgement of individual contributions across the Consortium.
  2. To identify opportunities to advance early stage or other investigators who can collaborate, increase overall productivity of the CEECR Program, and contribute new expertise as needed for authorship and to support their contributions.
  3. To ensure that papers published with the CEECR Consortium name do not substantially overlap and have undergone a standardized internal review.
  4. To ensure that similar or compatible approaches are used across papers and that one paper does not contradict another unless scientifically warranted.
