pbcorePublisher is a container for sub-elements publisher and publisherRole.

Usage: optional, repeatable


This element cannot have any attributes.


  • publisher: required | publisher identifies a person, people, or organization primarily responsible for distributing or making the asset available to others. The publisher may be a person, a business, organization, group, project or service.
  • publisherRole: optional | publisherRole is used to identify the role played by the specific publisher or publishing entity identified in the companion descriptor publisher. The PBCore schema allows for publisherRole to be repeated in the pbcorePublisher container element. This can be useful when a single person or organization is associated with multiple roles in an asset.
