Type of Publication
Combined form of both the type and format of publication, combined. This attribute comes from an older version of JATS; Deprecated in NISO STS.
Best Practice: This attribute, which is used only on the elements <issn> and <pub-date>, reflects an older version of JATS, which used specific precombined values. For NISO STS, Best Practice is:
- Use the <release-date> element instead of <pub-date> to hold the date on which a standards document is published. The element <pub-date> is being phased out.
- For <issn>, the attributes @publication-format and @specific-use or @publication-format can replace, in different attributes, the precombined values of the JATS @pub-type attribute.
