The authors contributing to your Instant Article are displayed at the top of the article and in its preview in News Feed.

Authors are specified using the standard HTML <address> element. To define the authors for your Instant Article, add an <address> element for each of the authors in the <header> section of your article's markup.


Name Description Definition

Name [required]

The name of the author.

Use the text content of the <a /> tag within the <address> element.



The most basic way to attribute an author to your Instant Article is to simply specify their name as part of the byline for the article. Enclose the author's name within an <a> tag and include in an <address> element.
