An important part of closing off a project is giving credit to the appropriate people. This really matters in digital humanities projects because they are usually developed in teams

General Advice

  • Discuss credit early. It seems tacky, but it is a good idea to talk about credit
  • When in doubt be generous with credit. I will generally list as a co-author on papers on projects anyone who has been significantly involved in the development of the project even if they didn't help write the paper.
  • Inform others when you are going to give a presentation or submit a paper and ask if they want to be involved.
  • Tell people when a paper is published related to a project. This is useful for their records.
