A journal article; the top-level element (document element) of the Archiving Tag Set, which contains all the metadata and content for the article
This element can be used to describe not only typical journal articles (research articles) but also much of the non-article content within a journal, such as book and product reviews, editorials, commentaries, and news summaries.
For a detailed discussion on tagging book reviews and similar articles, see Tagging Book or Product Reviews. For a detailed discussion on the tagging of letters and responses in an article, see Letters and Replies. For a detailed discussion on the use of <sub-article>s within a main article, see Sub-articles to an Article.
