A special thank you to the following people for technical contributions:
And to the designers of the Laravel Framework.
Lead authors have made substantial contributions to the website, at a level much greater than contributing authors. We have not figured the rest of this part out, it is a difficult question to solve in the framework in which we currently do science. The concept behind this website was a free open sharing platform that would encourage contributions from all users of the technique, solid state NMR. In this regard we feel it is very important to cite and credit everyone’s contribution, no matter how big or small. Unfortunately, the nature of academic hiring and careers is highly dependent on irrelevant qualities and easily quantifiable academic output; which unfortunately boils down to factoids or simple numbers which rarely correspond to the actual value of a scientific or engineering researcher. Furthermore, the nature of citation tools, such as DOIs, are somewhat rigid, and don’t allow the flexibility that is needed by multi author, fluid online collaborations, such as this one. At the moment lead authorship is limited to contributors who have contributed substantially to the scientific content of the website. We are happy to discuss further if the authorship or our approach to authorship is not serving our community of contributors most truthfully.
We have modeled our contributing authors after the CRediT Contributor Roles Taxonomy. This allows a somewhat uniform and familiar way to attribute credit to the many people who have helped create this resource. We believe that the contributing authors list is to include everyone who has contributed something. This can be as small as a grammar fix, to something as large as the initial website itself. CRediT also asks for all contributions to be credited, from authors to people mentioned in acknowledgments. However, CRediT was designed for academic articles, and although this website is similar, it is somewhat different than a standard article. We have added the "other" category, and may need to add additional categories as we run into them.
Ideas; formulation or evolution of overarching research goals and aims.
Management activities to annotate (produce metadata), scrub data and maintain research data (including software code, where it is necessary for interpreting the data itself) for initial use and later re-use.
Application of statistical, mathematical, computational, or other formal techniques to analyse or synthesize study data.
Acquisition of the financial support for the project leading to this publication.
Conducting a research and investigation process, specifically performing the experiments, or data/evidence collection.
Development or design of methodology; creation of models.
Management and coordination responsibility for the research activity planning and execution.
Provision of study materials, reagents, materials, patients, laboratory samples, animals, instrumentation, computing resources, or other analysis tools.
Programming, software development; designing computer programs; implementation of the computer code and supporting algorithms; testing of existing code components.
Oversight and leadership responsibility for the research activity planning and execution, including mentorship external to the core team.
Verification, whether as a part of the activity or separate, of the overall replication/reproducibility of results/experiments and other research outputs.
Preparation, creation and/or presentation of the published work, specifically visualization/data presentation.
Preparation, creation and/or presentation of the published work, specifically writing the initial draft (including substantive translation).
Preparation, creation and/or presentation of the published work by those from the original research group, specifically critical review, commentary or revision – including pre- or post-publication stages.
