Clear from the contents is if the cited description is put in
quotation marks (with an explanation somewhere in the text from who
wrote the quoted texts), or if the name of the foreign contributor is
quoted below the description (not only behind the name), or if there
is an expressed statement "description was made by...".
If a name is just cited behind a name and you need secondary sources
to understand that this person provided the description, then the
author of the work is deemed to be the author of the new name.
