Corresponding Author

Indicates whether or not the contributor is the corresponding contributor for the content.


Although many publishers specify only one corresponding author, with other publishers there is no limit to the number of contributors who may be designated to receive correspondence for the book. Accordingly, more than one <contrib> element may have its @corresp attribute set to “yes”.

Used on Element: <contrib>

noThis author (or other contributor) is not a corresponding author.
yesThis author (or other contributor) is a corresponding author.
Restriction@corresp is an optional attribute; there is no default.
