Maybe you can point me to the right direction? I've been in the biz about
20 years now and have never seen writer credit on any of the documents I've
published. I'm thinking there's a standard on this somewhere - I'm looking
for it.

The only time I've had my name on a book was when the sign-off page was
stapled to the front at one of my old (government) jobs.

I'm asking because an engineer on my team wants me to put his name down to
credit him for docs that he's worked on. These are all internal IT

Anyone have any info on this?

Thanking you in advance.
