Guidelines for the authorship of projects conducted under the auspices of the Canadian Perioperative Anesthesia Clinical Trials Group

  • The principal investigator – in consultation with the Trial Steering Committee if one exists – will determine the rank order of authorship bearing in mind the following considerations:
    1. The degree to which a proposed author has contributed to the design and conduct of the trial; and
    2. If trainees involved, the impact to the development of their prospective career
  • All papers will be reviewed and may be edited as appropriate by PACT prior to any submission for publication
  • All manuscripts will acknowledge the funding source(s)
  • All manuscripts will indicate at the end of the individual authors list the following phrase “on behalf of the Canadian Perioperative Anesthesia Clinical Trials Group”
