<series> Series (in a citation)

Container element for any series information for a journal article or a book that is referenced in a citation (such as a <mixed-citation>, an <element-citation>, or a <related-article>). For example, within a citation to a book series that spans multiple volumes, this element could contain the unique title of the entire series.


This series element is not related to series in standards. For standards documents, series can be recorded with the designators contained in a <std-id> element or in a group of such designators (several <std-id>s inside a <std-id-group>) and recorded using the @std-relationship-type attribute.
