Author Comment

An article metadata element that contains extra textual material associated with a contributor (an author or editor)


A typical author comment might explain, for example, some facts about the circumstances under which a contributor wrote the article material. Such remarks are typically added by the publisher, so this element will rarely be used in Authoring.
