Type of Publisher

Type of publisher or publishing organization of a work being cited (for example, “government”, “standards-body”, “university”, “commercial”, “foundation”, “private”, “corporate”).


The @publication-type, @publisher-type, and @publication-format attributes replace the @citation-type attribute of prior versions, which provided no clear way to distinguish these different notions.
