[Topic-models] Topic coherence in author-topic models

I’m wondering how to compute topic coherence in the author-topic model
information or advice would be appreciated.
In case it’s needed, a very short description of author-topic models and
- An author-topic model is basically just a topic model where each
author is associated with a distribution over topics. It is based on Latent
- Topic coherence <http://dirichlet.net/pdf/mimno11optimizing.pdf>
evaluates the quality of topics by a metric based on the co-document
frequency of words.
Is topic coherence valid for the author-topic model?
Is there any different metric I could use to evaluate the topics resulting
from a author-topic model? For example, one could use the co-author
frequency of words. Is there any annotated data (like in the topic
coherence paper) that can be use to validate a topic coherence metric in
the author-topic model?
