Wrapper element for one or more authors, editors, translators, etc., that are named in a cited reference
This element is very similar to the <contrib-group> element in the metadata for books and book components. It would have been nice to design the NCBI Book Tag Set and NCBI Collection Tag Set in such a way that there was just one element that could be used inside both the metadata and inside a citation. But using the same name for both elements was not possible, since the content of the two elements is different, and these are DTDs, not schemas. (Note: Some schema languages could accommodate such context-related model differences.)
