Container element for a text link to a published related object other than a journal article, possibly accompanied by a very brief description of the object. For example, the related object might be a related book, a chapter in a book, or a figure or graphic from another published source.
This element represents the link’s reference to its target in three parts:
For each of source, document, and object, an identifier is specified on the corresponding attribute. If the source and document are the same, the @source-id attribute should be empty. If the document and object are the same, the <object-id> attribute should be empty. The @document-id attribute should always be specified.
The <related-object> element can also provide a name for the type of each identifier used, for example ISBN, ISSN, DOI, XMLID, URI, and so on. These go on @source-id-type, @document-id-type, and @object-id-type as appropriate.
Finally, the <related-object> element can provide a name for the type of destination data each identifier actually points to, for example Book, Part, Chapter, Section, Table, Glossary, Figure, Page, and so on. These go on @source-type, @document-type, and @object-type as appropriate. An application might, as one example, use @object-type values to display links to Figures in a different style than links to Chapters or Tables. When applicable, these types may, but need not, correspond to XML element type names.
This element (<related-object>) is new in version 3.0 of the Tag Set, although some users have added a custom element of the same name to prior versions. The values and/or usage in version 3.0 may not be backward-compatible with such customizations.
