Type of Date
Event in the lifecycle of an article that this date is marking (for example, the date the manuscript was received or accepted, the date the electronic preprint was published, or the date of any revision or retraction).
In this version of this Tag Set, there are two attributes that can be used to describe history dates and publication dates of articles. The @date-type attribute records the type of event in the lifecycle, such as “accepted”, “published”, or “revised” dates. In addition, the @publication-format attribute records the type of format or media, for example, “print”, to which the event happened. In previous versions of this Tag Set, the two types of information were combined, so an attribute could say that an article was “ecorrected”, meaning that the article was in electronic form and that it was corrected. In this Tag Set, the attribute @date-type would take the value “corrected” and the @publication-format attribute would take the value “electronic” to convey the same information.
