table-model Table Model Used

Which table model is used by the tag set for this document?


Until Version 1.3 of JATS, @dtd-version was a #FIXED attribute, set in the schema/DTD, that could not be changed by the JATS user. It was intended to name the highest-level version of JATS to which the document was valid. Being #FIXED meant that the attribute was always there, even if it was not present in the document.
Since the @dtd-version attribute has never provided a complete description of which version of the tag set a document is associated with, several attributes were added to the <processing-meta> element to describe the version choices more fully:
Which of the JATS tag set families is the basis for this document’s tag set? (e.g., “jats” or “bits”)
Which of the JATS standard tag sets is the basis for this document? (e.g., “publishing” or “archiving”)
Which table model is used by the tag set for this document? (e.g., “xhtml” or “oasis”)
Which version of MathML is used by the tag set for this document? (e.g., “3.0” or “2.0”)

Best Practice for no Tables

If no table model is used in this tag set, either because this is a derivative tag set that does not use a table model or because standard JATS (which defines a table model) is used but tables are never tagged, this attribute should be set to “none”.
OPTIONAL on element: <processing-meta>
