Type of Footnote
Type of information conveyed in the footnote (for example, contributor’s current affiliation, financial disclosure statement, reprint information).
There are many reasons why the text or metadata of an article might be footnoted. Where those reasons are known (for example, one of the reasons listed in the suggested values list below), this attribute can preserve that information. This could be a means of preserving, for example, that a contributor is on a leave of absence.
Used on Element: <fn>
|Text, numbers, or special characters||The type of footnote, where the publisher or archive has given the footnote a named type such as “corresp” to indicate a corresponding author footnote.|
|Restriction||@fn-type is an optional attribute; there is no default.|
