CRediT taxonomy/author contribution

Hi, I’m doing some work getting author contribution data into our CRIS (Elements), does anyone know whether there are any plans to include this data in a metadata feed?
We have fields for using the CRediT taxonomy but has to be entered manually at present. Several of the big publishers include it in final print versions, so would be good to be able to import it.

Hi Nicola,

We’re in the planning stages of expanding our support for contributor roles - this will include taxonomies like CRediT. Unfortunately I don’t have a date for when we’ll be able to support this, but can confirm that we do intend to expand the contributor roles we collect in the future.

Best,

Patricia

Hi Patricia,

I was just wondering if there is any new information about support for CRediT in CrossRef, and ideally in collaboration with ORCID so that aggregated contribution information can be made available there.

Thanks,
Dan

We are currently examining contributor roles at our organization as well. We’ve had a lot of requests from our users to start adopting the CRediT taxonomy. Looking forward to any updates there may be about this!

Updates on CRediT: we have a request for feedback out on our planned inputs and outputs for our support for multiple contributor roles and vocabularies (like CRediT): Expanding support for contributor roles / CRediT (for public comment) - Google Docs and hope to get started on implementing this late 2024 / early 2025
