<corresp> Correspondence Information

Information concerning how and with whom to correspond about an article.


A cross-reference element (<xref>) may point to this element’s @id attribute.

Best Practice

While this element contains an optional <label> element, the <label> element should be included only in those circumstances where a formatting override is needed; <label> should NOT be used in the ordinary course of tagging.
Related Elements
Best Practice: In current journal tag set practice, information naming one contributor as the corresponding contributor may be tagged explicitly using a <corresp> element or may just be one of many footnotes <fn> concerning the contributor. Although this Suite supports both practices, if possible, the correspondence information should be tagged using the <corresp> element.
