Type of Publisher

The type of publisher or publishing organization, for example, government, standards-body, university, commercial, foundation, private, and so on.


The @publication-type, @publisher-type, and @publication-format attributes replace the citation-type attribute of prior versions, which provided no clear way to distinguish these different notions.
