NISO has launched its work to formalize the Contributor Role Taxonomy (CRediT) as an ANSI/NISO standard.  Initially, a small working group will focus on the 14 contributor roles in the existing CRediT taxonomy.  Once the ANSI/NISO approval process has completed, a NISO CRediT Standing Committee will be set up to provide a forum for discussion and community feedback, support further implementations and use cases for CRediT, and to consider how CRediT can be further developed and expanded to support contributions in a wider range of subject areas.

More information is available at the website ... this page will be updated with additional resources as the project progresses.
