This is a user role within WordPress.

A contributor is a basic role that allows the user to log into the site and to add content. This role does not allow for publishing or altering anything other than their own content. They can also see a restricted amount of options on the WordPress admin area, making it a great choice for people who’d like others to write content on their site.

To conclude...

A contributor is a pre-defined WordPress role and restricts the number of options they can see in the editor, including only being able to see their own posted content.
