<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 article and issue metadata (both inside <article-meta> element) may include, for example, bibliographic data such as authorship, article title, copyright year, and publication date; descriptive material such as keywords and abstracts; or any article identifying numbers.
Metadata Comparison to Other Journals
Some journal tag sets identify three types of article metadata: that concerning the specific article, that concerning the journal, and that concerning the issue of the journal that contains the article. In this Tag Set, the metadata for the issue and the article has been placed together inside the <article-meta> and the journal metadata into the <journal-meta> element.
For example, users of MAJOUR-Header-style journal tag sets should note that MAJOUR-Header-style issue metadata is part of the <article-meta> in this Tag Set.
