The current status of a term (<term>) in the vocabulary from which it is taken, for example, “preferred”.
Used on Element: <term>
|Text, numbers, or special characters||The status word that describes the state of the term, for example, “non-preferred” (deprecated).|
|Restriction||@term-status is an optional attribute; there is no default.|
Although this attribute can take any value, Best Practice recommendation is to use one of the following values, first defined in NISO STS and alter 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 Deprecated terms include obsolete and superseded terms.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.
