Wrapper element for information concerning a grouping of contributors, such as primary authors. These are contributors who worked individually, not as a group.
Not to be confused with the element <collab>, which is used for groups of authors who are credited under a single name, either as a collaboration in the strictest sense, or when an organization, institution, or corporation is given as a contributor.
