All those who have made considerable inputs should be identified as co-authors. The corresponding author makes sure that only all the contributing co-authors and not the non contributing personnel are included in the list of authors. The corresponding author will also confirm that all co-authors have given consent to the final version of the paper and have agreed/approved of its submission to REJOST for publication.
