This “Tag Library” documents the Archiving and Interchange Tag Set of the ANSI/NISO Z39.96-2021, JATS: Journal Article Tag Suite. This document describes all the elements and attributes that can be used to tag journal articles in JATS Archiving and provides tagging advice and examples.
This Tag Library document includes:
- Short descriptions and usage notes for the elements and attributes,
- Descriptions of relationships among related elements and attributes and direct linking to related components,
- Structural Diagrams, showing the element hierarchy for an article and for complex elements,
- Tagging examples,
- Best practice recommendations,
- Implementation advice,
- Discussion of accessibility and the Tag Suite, and
- Pointers to (non-normative) downloadable versions of DTDs, XSDs, and RNGs that implement the NISO JATS Tag Sets.
Getting Started is the first chapter in the Tag Library, and it contains the following sections:
How to move around the Tag Library pages, using the Navigation Bar (Navbar), Navbar collapse and expand arrows, page collapse/expand diamonds, and the search facility.

Describes the sections of the Tag Library and what can be found in each and how to use the Tag Library to get started learning the tag set.
Introduction to Archiving Tag Set
Provides basic information about the JATS Archiving Tag Set. What is the scope of JATS? What was it designed to do? How is the top-level <article> element structured?
Names the <article> element as the root of this XML schema (DTD, XSD, and RNG).
Selecting a Model & Schema
Describes the different JATS schemas and how to choose the right one for your implementation.
Tree-like graphical representations of the content of many elements. This can be a fast, visual way to determine the structure of an article or of any complex element within an article.
