Dear Core DMG,

A proposal has been received to expand the fields available for the _audit_author loop. Currently this includes only a name and address. It is proposed to expand this to include ORCID ID, email and affiliation, as well as adding a separate loop to describe the roles of each of the authors.  For example, the following loop would describe and experiment where instrument responsible M Jones collected data and helped lead investigator S Sparrow to reduce the data. S Sparrow went to J Harkness for help with the structural solution:

Martha Jones      'data collection'
Martha Jones      'data reduction'
Sally Sparrow     'data reduction'
Sally Sparrow     'data processing'
Sally Sparrow     'CIF preparation'
Sally Sparrow     'structural refinement'
Jack Harkness    'structural refinement'

This expansion is requested because of the many CIFs which represent the cumulative efforts of a number of people, but the CIF may be the first or only documentation of the experiment that is available.  I am led to understand that the inclusion of such credits in CIFs is seen as a good idea by the wider community.

If there are no objections to this expansion, I will prepare a set of definitions and submit them to this group for approval.

best wishes,
