Researchers will be included as co-authors on BugNet manuscripts if they do the following:
1) To become a co-author of BugNet manuscripts related to the comparative study, contribution of data from at least two sites is required. This entitles the co-authorship for two scientists (e.g., 2 PIs, or 1 PI + 1 student).
2) To become a co-author of BugNet manuscripts related to the experimental study, contribution of data from one site for the duration of at least 4 years is required. This entitles the authorship for three scientists. If you run an experimental site in your area, you will also become a co-author on manuscripts related to the observational study.
Co-authors should also contribute intellectually to either the development of research questions, data analysis, identification of invertebrates, writing and editing.
