What is meant by author?

cropped logo icono

The physical, natural person (human being) that realizes the intellectual creation of a literary, scientific or artistic work. So, in order to be considered the author or co-author of a work, the person has had to carry out, by him – or herself, the mental process of conceiving and expressing a literary, scientific or artistic work. Consequently, the mere contribution of ideas that serve as antecedents for the creation of the work or the purely physical or mechanical, non-creative contribution to the creation of the work, do not attribute the status of author.
