Groups information on the person(s) that is/are responsible for providing further information regarding the resource
The recommended way for referring to a person is by giving their surnames and given names and supplying also their unique identifiers, preferably the ORCID; if you provide the identifier, please select also the relevant value from the list of values in the attribute "personIdentifierSchemeName"; if none is appropriate, please select "other" and use the "schemeURI" attribute to provide a link to a URL with more information about the identifier scheme.
If you provide the name as a single element (personName), please use the format "Surname, First name".
The element can also be repeated to encode multiple persons.
If you decide to add a contactPerson instead of a general contactEmail, please ensure that the data (including the email) of this person are also uploaded in OpenMinTeD.
