Although this attribute can take any value, Best Practice is to use one of the following values, first defined in NISO STS and later adopted by JATS:
A term that does not meet the requirements to be a preferred term, but is not deprecated, possibly because it is in common use. Expanded and abbreviated forms of a term are sometimes used as admitted terms.
This term is deprecated in favor of a preferred term. Deprecated terms include obsolete and superseded terms.
This term is the current term, the one to be used.
