NISO launched its work in 2020 to formalize the Contributor Role Taxonomy (CRediT) as an ANSI/NISO standard. A small working group was set up to focus on the 14 contributor roles in the existing CRediT taxonomy.  Now that the ANSI/NISO approval process has completed, a NISO CRediT Standing Committee has been established 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.
