Sequence of Same-page Articles


Sequence number of an article that starts on the same page as one or more other articles


For journals (such as continuous-makeup journals) with more than one article starting on the same page, this attribute indicates a sequence number or letter for this article. For example, the first article to start on page 62 might be given a sequence of “62a”; the sequence letter would be “a”, with a sequence letter “b” for a second article, etc.
