Aggregate Author

The artifact specifies only aggregate author information.

Artifacts authored by an opaque aggregate entity, such as the “Acme Editorial Board” or “NewsWrench Staff” are considered less substantial because no single person is responsible for the content or presentation of the material. While it may be obvious today who the members of the Acme Editorial Board are, as time passes the providence of the piece becomes more obscure.


The Aggregate Author flag is an informational marker that identifies artifacts posted with aggregate author info, not to be confused with multiple authors.
