<person-group> Person Group (in a citation)

Wrapper element for one or more authors, editors, translators, etc. named in a cited reference.


This element is used only in citations and similar elements and cannot be used to record the committee, working group, or other participation for a standards document.
The <person-group> element can be used to group all the contributors of a particular type (for example, authors, editors, directors, translators) that are named in a reference.
This element may also include any punctuation and spacing that is between the names, even when this element is used within an <element-citation>. Therefore, within the context of an element-only <element-citation>, care should be taken not to accidentally allow punctuation and spaces, since an XML parser will not view this as an error.

Custom Person Group Type (@person-group-type)

The @person-group-type attribute can be used to preserve information concerning the type of contributors being cited (for example, “author”s, “curator”s, or “editor”s). @person-group-type has as its values a fixed list of types. If your contributor type is not one of the listed types, you can use @custom-type to describe the actual type. Set the value of @person-group-type to “custom” and also use @custom-type to hold any role you require. For example:
<person-group person-group-type="custom" custom-type="model-maker"...>...<person-group>
