Journal Metadata

Metadata that identifies the journal in which the article was published


Some journal tag sets identify three types of article metadata: that concerning the specific article, that concerning the journal, and that concerning the issue of the journal that contains the article. In this Tag Set, the metadata for the issue and the article has been placed together inside the <article-meta> and the journal metadata into this <journal-meta> element.
