  2. As part of the reference metadata of a bibliographic reference (<citation> or <nlm-citation> in a <ref-list>).
For extensive examples of formatted <nlm-citation>s including use of <publisher-name>s in <nlm-citation>s, see: Sample PubMed Central Citations. To see tagged versions of these examples, see: Sample PubMed Central Citations - XML Tagged.
