Understand Contributor Permissions

Contributors are a group of collaborators within a project, component, registration, or preprint. Projects and components have individual contributor lists and permissions levels, so you can control who can access and modify your work.
You can also assign different permissions to contributors in different components of a project. This help guide explains what each level of permissions can do.
There are three different levels of permissions that contributors can have:
- Administrator (Admin)
Administrators manage other contributors and permissions. The administrator determines whether a contributor is bibliographic or non-bibliographic, or whether their name appears in citations and on the project, component, registration, or preprint. You might make a contributor non-bibliographic if they are managing administrative functions on the project but wouldn't be included in citations.
Administrators are also granted read access to all components within the project, even if the administrator is not a contributor on the component.
