JATS currently contains several elements for tagging physical address information including

, and . We would like to suggest adding elements , and . It is of course possible to use to tag all components of an address, however city, state and postal code appear very frequently within address information and having specific elements available in JATS could be helpful. Our JATS customization includes elements for city, state and postal-code, and this extension might be useful in standard JATS.


Example XML:

a Faculty of Engineering, Information and Systems, University of Tsukuba, Tsukuba, 305-8573, Japan

b Ollin Tlahtoalli, Oaxaca, Oaxaca, Mexico


Example DTD model:

                        "addr-line | country | fax |

                         institution | phone |

                         city | state | postal-code " >

                        "city | state | postal-code | country | fax | institution | phone " >

Submitter Proposed Solution

We propose:

1. Add element , which allows #PCDATA, to hold the name of a city or town.

2. Add element , which allows #PCDATA, to hold the name of a state or province.

3. Add element , which allows #PCDATA, to hold a postal code.

4. Modify parameter entities %address.class and #address-line.class to include elements , and

5. Modify paremeter entity %conf-loc-elements to include %address.class.
