Common attributes


DocBook allows you to directly identify Authors and Editors. OtherCredit provides a mechanism for identifying other individuals, for example, contributors or production editors, in a similar context.

Processing expectations

May be formatted inline or as a displayed block, depending on context. Sometimes suppressed.

Future Changes

AuthorBlurb and Affiliation will be removed from the inline content of OtherCredit in DocBook V4.0. A new wrapper element will be created to hold OtherCredit, AuthorBlurb, and Affiliation.


The following elements occur in othercredit: address, affiliation, authorblurb, contrib, email, firstname, honorific, lineage, othername, personblurb, personname, surname.
