The element whose generic identifier (tag name) is "supplementary-material" has an element name of "Supplementary Material". I propose that the element name be changed to 'Supplementary Material Metadata'.

Submitter Proposed Solution


The name change will better indicate that the element IS NOT A CONTAINERr for any supplementary material  object, just a metadata bucket for information about the supplemental object, which may include a link to the object.

This was done in JATS 1.1d3.
