How to register more than one affiliation for an individual author?


Is it possible to register more than one author affiliation for a single author? If so, how and with which tool?

At which level of affiliation does the registering of it makes sense? For example in the following case:

  • Associate Professor of Philosophy of Education, KU Eichstätt-Ingolstadt (Germany),
  • Visiting Associate Professor in the Wits School of Education, University of the Witwatersrand (South Africa), and
  • Fellow of the Oxford Centre for Animal Ethics (Great Britain).

Hi ,

You may include multiple affiliations for a single author by simply adding additional affiliation elements for each of the contributors, like this:

    <person_name sequence="first" contributor_role="author">
        <affiliation>Crossref University</affiliation>
        <affiliation>The Housecat University</affiliation>
        <ORCID authenticated="true"></ORCID>
    <person_name sequence="additional" contributor_role="author">
        <affiliation>Brown University</affiliation>
        <ORCID authenticated="true"></ORCID>

My best,
