This request was submitted by Jeff Beck on behalf of the BITS Working Group.

Request: Id like to request that the <abstract> element be added to additional locations in the next revision of JATS.
Submitter Proposed Solution
We request that the <abstract> be added to

app
app-group
boxed-text
chem-struct-wrap
disp-formula
disp-formula-group
fig
fig-group
graphic
media
sec (keywords but not abstract present in current Tag Set)
statement
supplementary-material
table-wrap
table-wrap-group
Developer Response
Is the rational that various components of a journal article, such as a chemical formula, figure, or table, can have their own abstract separate from an abstract attached to the article as a whole?

Thank you for your comment. The JATS Standing Committe has addressed your request. Non-normative supporting materials including schemas with these additions in place should be available soon.

The Standing Committee's recommendation is:

• Abstracts will be added to the following elements:
• ack
• app
• app-group
• bio
• boxed-text
• chem-struct-wrap
• disp-formula
• disp-formula-group
• fig
• fig-group
• graphic
• media
• notes
• sec
• statement
• supplementary-material
• table-wrap
• table-wrap-group

• The following changes will be made in the non-normative documentation:
• Document a clear distinction between and the accessibility elements (<alt-text> and <long-desc>).
• Document a clear distinction between the abstracts for document components and the abstract in <articlemeta>
that represents the entire article.


• These changes will not be made to the Authoring Tag Set.
