<access-date> Access Date For Cited Work (deprecated)

The date on which the work which is cited was examined.
This element comes from an older version of JATS and is now deprecated in JATS; therefore, NISO STS users should avoid using it. Use the <date-in-citation> element to record the access date for a citation.


The <access-date> element has been replaced by the <date-in-citation> element with a @content-type attribute value “access-date” that records the date on which the cited work was examined.
