7.7.2 Authors’ certificates

Many drug bulletins publish anonymous articles. However, authors may need certificates as proof of their collaboration, for example for use in curriculum vitae. Reviewers sometimes also ask for such certificates. It is useful to have a policy concerning certificates and develop a set format for each type of certificate.
