Metadata Data Name for Custom Metadata


The field name of a custom metadata element, inserted to capture metadata information that is beyond this DTD


Some DTDs and schemas allow for metadata above and beyond that which is specified in this DTD. To capture this metadata during conversion, use the <custom-meta> element, which contains one name/value pair with few constraints on the length or content of the value. For example, if an element named <prev-journal-title> contains an older title for this journal, as part of the journal metadata, use the <custom-meta> element, with a <meta-name> of “prev-journal-title” and a <meta-value> containing the older name.

The element <custom-meta-wrap> acts as a wrapper element to contain an infinite number of <custom-meta> elements. Each <custom-meta> element houses a name/value pair, <meta-name> and <meta-value> respectively, which name and provide a value for a single metadata field.
