(24 May 2022) From Scholarly Kitchen:
“As you may have seen, the Contributor Roles Taxonomy (aka CRediT) was recently formalized as an ANSI/NISO standard, making it easier for organizations to give — and individuals to get — recognition for their specific contributions to a research publication (full disclosure: I am Director of Community Engagement for NISO). Getting to this point took a lot of work on the part of many people, not least, the three Co-Chairs of the NISO Contributor Roles Taxonomy Working Group, Liz Allen, Simon Kerridge, and Alison McGonagle-O’Connell. And, while this was a major milestone, there is still much work to be done. So I’m very grateful to Liz, Simon, and Alison for taking the time to tell us a bit about the standardization process, next steps (including launching a new NISO Standing Committee, which will be announced shortly), and opportunities to get involved.”
