    Author Biography/Author's Biography?

    Should it be "Author Biography" or "Author's Biography"? I was just searching the net for a poet's biography, and have encoutered the former (i.e., Author Biography). It's a well-known website for study notes. I am quite confused . The site is
    BookRags: Research Anything - Book Summaries, Study Guides, Essays, Biographies, Encyclopedias

    Is is a mistake on the webpage, or is it OK.? Could someone please clarify it to me?

    Thanks a trillion in advance.

    Re: Author Biography/Author's Biography?

    People often put nouns together in that way nowadays. If it's used as a page heading (I can't see it), then I see no problem with it.

    Dear Tdol,

    Many thanks for your help.

    Do you mean a web page or a homework copy page? If one want to write in their homework copy, what should they write? Author's Biography or Author Biography?

    I am sorry - I was a bit unclear I think. Here's the page;
