Abstract [en]

Sometimes participants in research collaborationdie before the paper is accepted for publication. Thequestion we raise in this paper is how authorship shouldbe handled in such situations. First, the outcome of aliterature survey is presented. Taking this as our startingpoint, we then go on to discuss authorship of the deadin relation to the requirements of the Vancouver rules.We argue that in principle the deceased can meet therequirements laid down in these authorship guidelines.However, to include a deceased researcher as authorrequires a strong justification. The more the person has been involved in the research and writing process beforehe or she passes away, the stronger the justification forinclusion.
