Publication

Affiliations

When preparing for publication in national and international scientific journals as well as in abstracts and in PowerPoint presentations and posters, affiliations to our department should be given as:

  • Department of Cardiothoracic and Vascular Surgery, Aarhus University Hospital, Aarhus, Denmark

An eventual affiliation to the Department of Clinical Medicine, Aarhus University should be given as:

  • Department of Clinical Medicine, Faculty of Health, Aarhus University, Aarhus, Denmark

This is to unify the way our department is cited, so publications can be traced back to us.

Authorship

Authorship is generally based on the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors (ICMJE) recommendations for the Conduct, Reporting, Editing, and Publication of Scholarly Work in Medical Journals. This means that authorship is based on the following four criteria:

  • Substantial contributions to the conception or design of the work; or the acquisition, analysis, or interpretation of data for the work;
  • AND drafting the work or revising it critically for important intellectual content;
  • AND final approval of the version to be published;
  • AND agreement to be accountable for all aspects of the work in ensuring that questions related to the accuracy or integrity of any part of the work are appropriately investigated and resolved.

CRediT

The CRediT (Contributor Roles Taxonomy) was originally developed by CASRAI (Consortia Advancing Standards in Research Administration Information) to represent the roles typically played by contributors to scientific scholarly output. The roles describe each contributor’s specific contribution to the scholarly output. However, after the cessation of CASRAI, NISO (National Information Standards Organization) took over the management and has published the terminology as a formal ANSI/NISO standard.

Promotion & sharing of research

Sharing on social media

A publication in the European Heart Journal in 2020 found that a social media strategy of Twitter promotion for scientific papers from the cardiovascular domain seems to be associated with increased online visibility and higher number of citations. The department has it's own Twitter profile Cardiothoracic and Vascular Surgery, Aarhus with the profile name CTVS_Aarhus.
