We would like to suggest a new standard attribute value (?resubmitted?) for the @date-type attribute. Science has recently begun to include resubmitted dates in our XML. Although we initially used the ?rev-recd? attribute value for this type of date, ?rev-recd? is not really an accurate descriptor. At Science, a resubmitted date is distinct from the date a revised document was received. Additionally, because of the move toward greater transparency in journal publishing, Science may elect to note both resubmitted and revision dates in our XML in the future. Other journals may also want to make this distinction.



Because the @date-type attribute is designed to accept any text as its value, Science will begin using ?resubmitted? as the attribute value in our XML. Accordingly, we propose that ?resubmitted? be added as a suggested date type in the recommendations for JATS 1.1 so that the tagging is standardized across the JATS community.

This comment is not relevant to standard; it applies only to the non-normative documentation. 

The value ?resubmitted? will be added as a suggested date type in the recommendations so that the tagging is standardized across the JATS community.
