This comment is submitted by Jeffrey Beck on behalf of the Force11 Data Citation Implementation Group (https://www.force11.org/datacitationimplementation).



Documentation Request. The attribute @publication-type is currently used  on the citation elements 'mixed-citation' and 'element-citation' to record the type of publication being cited, for example, "book", "journal", or "standard". Current JATS has no suggestions applicable to citing data sources.





Scope: Archiving, Publishing, Authoring



 

Submitter Proposed Solution

Add data-specific values to the suggested value lists for the attribute @publication-type. As a start, we recommend 'data'.



 

<mixed-citation publication-type="data"

  publication-format="online">...

The attribute @publication-type is currently used on the citation elements <mixed-citation> and
<element-citation> to record the type of publication being cited, for example, "book", "journal", or
"standard". The data-specific value “data” will be added to the non-normative suggested value lists
for the attribute @publication-type, with the meaning: “a dataset or other research data collection
such as a spreadsheet”.
