Type Attribute: The @pub-id-type attribute is used either to identify the type of identifier, or to name the authority, organization, or system that defined this identifier, for example, identifying a DOI, PubMed Central identifier, Coden, the publisher’s identifier, etc. (See @pub-id-type for values.)
