Citations in Multiple Languages

A multi-language citation must be tagged as one citation so that it will be seen as a single citation by citation services and referenced as one from within the document. Therefore, within a single citation, this Tag Set allows components in more than one language. A study of multi-language citations showed that some publishers cluster all the elements of one language together, some intersperse single-language clusters, and some alternate languages (source in English followed by source in Japanese). To handle this degree of variety, the @xml:lang attribute may be used freely on the elements within a citation to mark those as a language other than the primary language of the document
