Prerequisites for publication

Authorship. The Editors of Experimental Brain Research subscribe to recommendations formulated by the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors [Ann Int Med (1988) 108:258-265] regarding criteria for authorship. Accordingly, each person listed as an author or coauthor for a submitted report must meet all of three criteria. An author or coauthor shall have: 1. conceived, planned, and performed the work leading to the report, or interpreted the evidence presented, or both; 2. written the report or reviewed successive versions and shared in their revisions; 3. approved the final version. Meeting these criteria should provide each author sufficient knowledge of and participation in the work that he or she can accept public responsibility for the report.
