How to find the name of the author of a package in R?

R ProgrammingServer Side ProgrammingProgramming

There can be multiple authors of a package in R and we might want to use their name if we are using their package in our publication for research, books, courses or any other type of content. Therefore, it is required to find out all the authors who contributed to a particular package and this can be done by using citation function with package name as shown in the below examples.
