Credit allocation among researchers determined by new algorithm
Date:8/15/2014

theCollege of Computer and Information Scienceat Northeastern. The paper builds upon his research in the science of success, which uses a mathematical model for quantifying the long-​​term success of individual researchers.

Barabsi explained that the traditional system of credit allocation varies depending on the field of research, and being the first author listed on a paper does not mean that person would receive the most credit. In biology, for example, the authors listed first and last on a paper are generally the one's who receive credit while in physics the author list is often alphabetical.

"If you are not an insider in the field, you have absolutely no idea who should get the credit for the paper," Barabsi said.

While the science community is usually correct when allocating credit to authors, sometimes credit can go to the wrong person. In their paper, the researchers wrote that "the ability to accurately measure the relative credit of researchers could potentially impact hiring, funding, and promotions."

Barabsi also noted this new algorithm could help professors from different disciplines who collaborate on a research paper determine to whom the community would credit thepaper.
