Abstract

Chinese Abstract: 本白皮书通过专家访谈,从通讯作者这一角色最初在同行评审 流程中一系列割裂的责任入手,深入探讨了近年来学术出版物 中“通讯作者”概念发生变化的诸多方面。一项新的科研人员调查显示,各国和各学科对通讯作者角色的真 正含义缺乏共识,这也正反映了作者承担文章通讯作者角色的不 同动机。尽管如此,通讯作者的概念已经与多作者论文中的“领导者”混 为一谈,这种情况在科学计量学研究中经常得不到验证,从而 对评价实践产生影响。

English Abstract: This white paper draws on expert interviews to explore the ways in which the concept of ‘corresponding authorship’ (CA) of publications has changed in recent years, starting from what was originally a set of discrete responsibilities in the peer review process. Insights from a new researcher survey reveal a lack of consensus across countries and disciplines about what the CA role really means, reflecting diverse incentives for authors to assume the CA role. Despite this, CA has become conflated with the notion of ‘leadership’ in multi-authored papers, a perception that has often gone unvalidated in scientometric studies with implications for evaluative practice.
