Author contribution statement
Lead authors may now add a short end-note to papers summarizing the roles and contributions of co-authors to their paper. As some co-authors contribute the majority of analysis and synthesis and others contribute by researching and collecting raw data, this would not only benefit individuals who contribute to a given study, but would help authors applying for grants, new posts and other professional evaluations.
The Contribution Statement is voluntary, and should be inserted above any other acknowledgements at the end of the paper, e.g.
Example ‘Contribution statement’
