The element <page-count> has been  changed to <book-page-count> with BITS 2.0.

While I understand the purpose for that decision within <book-meta> (although a proper distinction could also be made using the XPath expression). I think within <book-part-meta> it is very confusing and should still remain <page-count> or at least <book-part-page-count>.

This also applies to other counts used in BITS (like <table-count>, <fig-count>...).

Submitter Proposed Solution

I would prefer the BITS 1.0 solution and having the same element names for BITS and JATS with regard to counts.

This suggestion is outside the scope of the JATS Standing Committee, which does not deal with BITS. We will forward this suggestion to the BITS Working Group.
