[Extract] Now that you have read the guidelines for authors and decided that your work is ready for submitting to a suitable journal. Yes, the next step is to decide on authorship. I mean to say "whose name will appear in the manuscript and in what order". It is not at all a problem (issue) when you have worked alone where you will be the sole author in the manuscript. If at all there are multiple authors it is the best time to decide who will be the authors for the publication. This will prevent later arguments. Rational colleagues have become bitter enemies because of difference of opinions on the matter that whose names should be included in the paper and in what order.
