3.6.8.4. Article publication

| top | pdf |

Categories used during the publication of an article are as follows:

IUCR group
Journal housekeeping and reference entries (§3.6.8.4.1[link])
 JOURNAL
 JOURNAL_INDEX
Contents of a publication (§3.6.8.4.2[link])
 PUBL
 PUBL_AUTHOR
 PUBL_BODY
 PUBL_MANUSCRIPT_INCL

These categories cover both the metadata for the article (information about the article) and the text of the article itself.

3.6.8.4.1. Journal housekeeping and citation entries

| top | pdf |

Data items in these categories are as follows:

(a) JOURNAL [Scheme scheme203]

(b) JOURNAL_INDEX [Scheme scheme204]

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 (_).

In mmCIF, the families of categories used to contain the text of an article for publication and to record information about the hand­ling and processing of the article by a publisher are assigned to the IUCR category group. The name arose from the fact that CIF is sponsored by the International Union of Crystallography and several of the journals of the IUCr can handle articles submitted for publication in CIF format. However, these data items may be freely used by other publishers who wish to handle articles submitted in CIF format. The JOURNAL and JOURNAL_INDEX categories are used in the same way in the core CIF and mmCIF dictionaries, and Section 3.2.5.4[link] can be consulted for details.

3.6.8.4.2. Contents of a publication

| top | pdf |

Data items in these categories are as follows:

(a) PUBL [Scheme scheme205]

(b) PUBL_AUTHOR [Scheme scheme206]

(c) PUBL_BODY [Scheme scheme207]

(d) PUBL_MANUSCRIPT_INCL [Scheme scheme208]

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 categories PUBL, PUBL_AUTHOR, PUBL_BODY and PUBL_ MANUSCRIPT_INCL are also members of the IUCR group in the mmCIF dictionary. They are used in the same way in the core CIF and mmCIF dictionaries, and Section 3.2.5.5[link] can be consulted for details.
