Use this form to specify the contribution of each author of your manuscript. A distinction is made between five types of contributions: Conceived and designed the analysis; Collected the data; Contributed data or analysis tools; Performed the analysis; Wrote the paper.
For each author of your manuscript, please indicate the types of contributions the author has made. An author may have made more than one type of contribution. Optionally, for each contribution type, you may specify the contribution of an author in more detail by providing a one-sentence statement in which the contribution is summarized. In the case of an author who contributed to performing the analysis, the author’s contribution for instance could be specified in more detail as ‘Performed the computer simulations’, ‘Performed the statistical analysis’, or ‘Performed the text mining analysis’.
If an author has made a contribution that is not covered by the five pre-defined contribution types, then please choose ‘Other contribution’ and provide a one-sentence statement summarizing the author’s contribution.
