Newscoop includes a feature for managing publication contributors, which you can find by clicking Manage Authors on the Users menu. Authors do not necessarily have corresponding login accounts on the Newscoop system, but they can still be credited as contributors to articles.
Further information can be saved for each author, using the three tabs on the right-hand side of the page: General, Biography and Content. On the General tab, multiple author types can be assigned for credits on a particular article, including Author, Writer, Photographer, Editor or Columnist. The Biography tab includes a field for uploading an author photo, while the third tab, Content, tracks any articles associated with the author.
