&: The Writers Guild of America standardizes use of an ampersand (&) between authors' names in credits to indicate that the authors worked together as a team—as opposed to working at different times, or working by one author writing and another revising, for which "and" is used instead. Similarly, the Science & Justice Research Center uses an ampersand to emphasize an approach to scientific research and the pursuit of social justice as integrated and collaborative.
