<article-meta> Article Metadata

Container element for information concerning the article that identifies or describes the article.


The article metadata (<article-meta>) is not part of the body text or graphics of the article proper, but is part of the metadata front matter that serves to identify and describe the article. The metadata for an article may contain, for example, bibliographic data such as authorship, article title, copyright year, and publication date; or descriptive material such as abstracts or keywords assigned to the article.
