Author Note Group


Collection of footnotes to, or correspondence notes about, authors (and potentially about other contributors). Such footnotes/notes typically name one of the authors as a corresponding author, provide the author affiliation or current contact information, explain that the person has changed organizations, or provide other contributor-related material.


References to these footnotes <fn>, as to any other footnote, should be made using the <xref> element.

Authoring and Conversion Note: In current DTD 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 DTD Suite supports both practices, the best practice is to tag the correspondent information using the Correspondence Information <corresp> element.
