Research represents a fundamental component of today's clinical training in cardiology. Most residency programs require their trainees to be actively involved in research projects longitudinally during the curriculum, and high-impact publications constitute major assets when applying to advanced training programs, for research grants, and eventually academic positions. Today, research requires the convergence of multidisciplinary collaborators with complementary skill sets. As medical students, residents, fellows, and basic science trainees in the cardiovascular field, it is important to properly understand the written and unwritten rules governing authorship attribution when publishing research manuscripts, to avoid the unfortunate and avoidable frustrations of perceived unfair recognition of the accomplished work. Upon progressing in our training, our endeavours expand toward substantial intellectual inputs, to which journals tend to confer higher value when determining authorship. This article highlights guidelines and rules pertaining to manuscript authorship, and proposes tips and tricks for trainees.
