Phanous operates a progressive and transparent policy in relation to author affiliation on published work. According to our mission, vision and objectives, we feel that the following is a very fair basis for determining the author affiliations,
An institution must be quoted as the author's affiliation in a publication if the institution has made a necessary and material contribution to, or provided a basis for the author's contribution to the published work.
An institution should be listed as the primary affiliation if:
Majority of the work in question has been done at the institution, or
Majority of the research funding or resources has been provided by that institution
Employment or supervisory responsibility may be considered as justification for crediting an institution, if the requirement in point 1 is met.
Authors have a duty of care to declare and approve their affiliated institutions prior publication.
