Catalan term or phrase: eds
This is at the beginning of an academic paper in the title. Possibly an abbreviation? Shouldn't it be eds. then? These are the authors, I beliveve.

English translation:eds.
Explanation:
Seems like they are the editores/editors of the book, which may include articles by other authors as well. I'd go with (eds.) and change the 'i' into 'and'.

Notes to answerer
Asker: No, the editors are listed. I should have mentioned that. I will put it in the discussion. Thanks though.


Peer comments on this answer (and responses from the answerer)
agree  Carolina Bordonado Rodríguez
1 min
  -> Gracias Carolina!

agree  Berni Armstrong: You might also consider using "Co-Authors" (but it's a bit redundant. But then on, "eds." would appear redundant too, if specific editors are listed elsewhere).
47 mins
  -> Thank you Berni

neutral  Tony Isaac: Could the other eds mentioned elsewhere be the publishers? David and Aida could then be the editors.

  -> I'm not quite sure, honestly. What would you put up there?
