Container element for a description of, and possibly a pointer to, external resources that support the article, but which are not part of the content of the article.
Defining Supplementary Material: Supplemental material is used to add detail, background, or context to an article by providing, for example, multimedia objects such as audio clips and applets; additional XML-tagged sections, tables, or figures; raw data in a spreadsheet, or a software application in a repository. Supplementary material includes resources such as the following:
Contents of the Supplementary Material Element: The <supplementary-material> element does not contain the supplementary object(s); even if the objects are expressed in XML; supplementary objects are external to the XML article rather than part of the XML article. The <supplementary-material> element contains descriptions of the object(s), and it may also, but is not required to, contain a pointer to the objects(s). For example, if the supplementary object is an additional graphic, that graphic is described in the supplementary material but not held there. The <graphic> element that is permissible inside <supplementary-material> is intended for a description of an object, not to hold the object. For example, a <supplementary-material> element could contain a description of an animation, including the first frame of the animation (tagged as a <graphic> element), a caption describing the animation, and a cross-reference made to the external file that held the full animation.
Usage: The element is used in two contexts:
Relationship to NISO Supplemental Material Best Practices NISO RP-15-2013 Recommended Practices for Online Supplemental Journal Article Materials (http://www.niso.org/apps/group_public/download.php/10055/RP-15-2013_Supplemental_Materials.pdf) and NISO JATS have identical concepts for “additional” and “integral” material that comprises an article, but slightly different practice concerning whether supplementary material is integral or additional.
Both NISO JATS and NISO RP-15-2013 define
Relation to Other Journal Tag Sets: The <supplementary-material> element has a similar function to the <audiovisual> element in some XML tag sets and the <unprinted-item> element (used only for electronic files) in other tag sets.
