8.5.8 @article-type Type of Article

Type or kind of article (for example, research, commentary, review, case, or calendar).

This attribute can be used to attach information classes to articles for grouping or searching. An archive may use this, for example, to preserve the publisher’s classification of an article.

Use for primary article — When the article is a commentary on another article (for example, a correction or addendum), this attribute contains metadata concerning the commentary itself; it does not define the kind of article that is being corrected or amended.

In elements <article> and <sub-article>, this attribute may be used if the element is used.
Value Meaning
