Author Note Group

Container element for notes about the article’s contributors.


Usage: Typical <author-notes> include correspondence notes and other footnotes to authors (and potentially about other contributors). Such footnotes/notes may name one of the authors a corresponding author, provide the author affiliation or current contact information, explain that the person has changed organizations, or provide other contributor-related material.
Best Practice: References to these footnotes <fn>, as to any other footnote, should be made using the <xref> element.

Related Elements

Best Practice: The current model allows identification of the corresponding contributor either by explicit tagging using a <corresp> element or by providing a footnote <fn> concerning the contributor. While this Tag Set supports both practices, best practice is to tag the correspondent information using the <corresp> element.
