3.6.8.1. Literature citations

| top | pdf |

The categories describing literature citations are as follows:

CITATION group
 CITATION
 CITATION_AUTHOR
 CITATION_EDITOR

Data items in these categories are as follows:

(a) CITATION [Scheme scheme185]

(b) CITATION_AUTHOR [Scheme scheme186]

(c) CITATION_EDITOR [Scheme scheme187]

The bullet ([\bullet]) indicates a category key. The arrow ([\rightarrow]) is a reference to a parent data item. Items in italics have aliases in the core CIF dictionary formed by changing the full stop (.) to an underscore (_).

The original core CIF dictionary contained the data item _publ_section_references for citations of journal articles, book chapters and monographs. The authors of the mmCIF dictionary felt that a more detailed and structured approach to literature citations was required. This is provided by the mmCIF categories CITATION, CITATION_AUTHOR and CITATION_EDITOR. These categories were subsequently included in the core CIF dictionary and are used in the same way in both dictionaries. Section 3.2.5.1[link] may be consulted for details. Although _publ.section_references remains a valid mmCIF data item, it is expected that the CITATION, CITATION_AUTHOR and CITATION_EDITOR categories will be used for literature citations in mmCIFs.
