Used to record any time stamp that was found on the cited resource when it was examined, for resources such as databases that may use a time signature to identify different versions
This element does not represent the time when the cited resource was examined, but rather the time it was produced or distributed, or other milestone the resource creators chose to record the time.
This element may be used in bibliographic references (<citation> and <nlm-citation>). For extensive examples of formatted <nlm-citation>s including use of <time-stamp>s in <nlm-citation>s, see: Sample PubMed Central Citations. To see tagged versions of these examples, see: Sample PubMed Central Citations - XML Tagged.
