<series> Series

Series information about a journal or book in a bibliographic reference or other referencing element such as a related article.


The element <series> is used in elements that include citation information (<element-citation>, <mixed-citation>, <related-article>, <related-object>, <product>) to identify publications that are part of a published series. For example, a publisher may issue a “Nursing References Series” that includes a book on the history of nursing, one on current nursing practices, one on nursing education, and another containing nurses’ professional experiences. The <series> element is used to capture that “Nursing Reference Series” information.
