"Today, the research ecosystem is more varied and complex than ever before. Collaborations are rising across disciplines and around the globe, with scholars taking on increasing responsibilities, from securing funding to curating unprecedented data sets and everything in between. Yet many of these contributions go unrecognized.
Author lists often fail to account for the myriad roles in research development, leading to inequities in attribution and opaqueness around research processes. But that's all changing with the rise of the Contributor Roles Taxonomy (a.k.a. CRediT), now an ANSI/NISO standard. This webinar will offer a deep dive into the what, why, and how of CRediT implementation for scholarly journals. We'll cover:

- Key benefits of CRediT for journals and the wider research community and ways to leverage them..."
