##### (my philosophy: academic honesty for websites includes avoiding being misleading to an outsider;
this involves declaring which papers were double or single blind peer-reviewed at conferences/journals with low acceptance rates,
as opposed to being "refereed" or "invited" for submission at places with high acceptance rates;
it also includes declaring on which work you are a primary contributor of content,
where you know and can discuss the paper details confidently if contacted)
