<adoption-front>

Front Matter, Adoption

When a standard is adopted, sometimes the adopting organization wraps their own metadata, front matter, and back matter around a standard, producing a combined, nested document. The <adoption-front> element contains the metadata, any beginning narrative material, and possible back matter that describes the adopting standard (<adoption>).

Remarks

The <adoption-front> element contains all the text and metadata needed to produce the cover, the front matter, and (potentially) the back cover and back matter for an adopted standard. For example, the adoption front matter could contain the document title(s) for the adopted standard, its release date, some adoption notes, etc. Note: the standard or adoption document enclosed in the <adoption> will contain its own front matter.
Adoption Front Matter Restriction: The elements <iso-meta>, <reg-meta>, and <nat-meta> cannot be used inside the front matter for an adoption (<adoption-front>). Only <std-meta> may be used at the top level of an adoption. The elements <iso-meta>, <reg-meta>, and <nat-meta> can be used in the front matter of a standard (<front>).

Related Elements

Components of an Adoption: An adoption (<adoption>) may contain several top-level components:
  • An <adoption-front> element, which contains document-level and adoption-level metadata, possibly with notes and prose sections;
  • An optional adopting back matter element (<back>) provided by the adopting organization, which contains annexes in the local language or additional requirements or notes (Note: Some adopting organizations place all their adoption material, including adoption-specific back matter, before the standard they are adopting; others place the adoption-specific back matter after the standard being adopted. The NISO STS model for <adoption> allows either location to be used, though not both at once.);
  • The contents of the <adoption> that contain or point to the standard being adopted. This may include one or more of the following: The <std-xref> element may be particularly useful when a standards organization does not possess the XML version of the standard they are adopting, but only, for example, the PDF version. The <std-xref> element can also be used in situations where the adopting organization does not have permission to distribute the standard being adopted.
  • An optional adopting back matter element (<back>) provided by the adopting organization, which contains annexes in the local language or additional requirements or notes. (Note: Some adopting organizations place all their adoption material, including adoption-specific back matter, before the standard they are adopting; others place the adoption-specific back matter after the standard being adopted. The NISO STS model for <adoption> allows either location to be used, though not both at once.)
