The CASRAI CRediT Typology

This is just a reminder (and template) for me to use for the CASRAI credit typology:


    • Conceptualization: Ideas; formulation or evolution of overarching research goals and aims.
    • Methodology: Development or design of methodology; creation of models
    • Software: Programming, software development; designing computer programs; implementation of the computer code and supporting algorithms; testing of existing code components.
    • Validation: Verification, whether as a part of the activity or separate, of the overall replication/reproducibility of results/experiments and other research outputs.
    • Formal Analysis: Application of statistical, mathematical, computational, or other formal techniques to analyze or synthesize study data.
    • Investigation: Conducting a research and investigation process, specifically performing the experiments, or data/evidence collection.
    • Resources: Provision of study materials, reagents, materials, patients, laboratory samples, animals, instrumentation, computing resources, or other analysis tools.
    • Data Curation: Management activities to annotate (produce metadata), scrub data and maintain research data (including software code, where it is necessary for interpreting the data itself) for initial use and later reuse.
    • Writing – Original Draft Preparation: Creation and/or presentation of the published work, specifically writing the initial draft (including substantive translation).
    • Writing – Review & Editing: Preparation, creation and/or presentation of the published work by those from the original research group, specifically critical review, commentary or revision – including pre- or post-publication stages.
    • Visualization: Preparation, creation and/or presentation of the published work, specifically visualization/data presentation.
    • Supervision: Oversight and leadership responsibility for the research activity planning and execution, including mentorship external to the core team.
    • Project Administration: Management and coordination responsibility for the research activity planning and execution.
    • Funding Acquisition: Acquisition of the financial support for the project leading to this publication.
