This question pertains to author/contributor order and grouping on a technical document.
- I performed tests on some equipment and had two other people directly involved.
- My boss and his boss need to both be listed on the document as they ordered the testing and the paper needs them on it to have any validity.
- There were several other people who were not actively involved but made contributions ranging from from a comment like "hey, don't forget to test XYZ" to providing a part needed in testing
How do I order the people involved in testing and do I separate the active testers from 'other' contributors?
Below is a screenshot of what I've got right now. (names and subject are changed)
