Getting Started Guides and Fact Sheets...

Editorial and Authorship Policy

As it is the PHCRIS mission to provide the most recent and relevant information to its stakeholders, PHCRIS updated its Authorship Policy for Getting Started Guides (formerly infoBytes) and Fact Sheets in November 2014.

Due to the changing nature of the topics these resources cover, keeping information up-to-date is paramount to the value of these products. As a way of ensuring regular updates are not hindered by matters of authorship, it has been decided that both current and former PHCRIS employees will no longer be displayed as authors on PHCRIS Getting Started Guides and Fact Sheets. All authors are, however, acknowledged for their editorial contribution to PHCRIS products below.

The decision to no longer display PHCRIS authors was made inline with the 2014-15 Communications Strategy, to ensure full ownership of, and ongoing editorial control over, all literature produced and published under the PHCRIS name.

For more information about authorship and copyright please read the Australian Government Attorney General’s Quick Guide to Copyright and the Flinders University Library copyright overview.
