    Description of DTD-SciELO Text structure



    DTD-SciELO Text Version 3.1 defines the text structure of the electronic journals that do not have the characteristics of scientific article, such as an editorial or obituary. The texts marked with this DTD will be entered and retrieved from the database exactly like the scientific articles.

    The element [text] has the following attributes to identify the text in the journal issue:

It is composed of a character to identify the publication type (S for journals and B for monographs); the publication's ISSN or ISBN; two digits indicating the year of publication, only for journals; five characters identifying the publication's item (this is a sequential and annual number); and a character for the verifying digit. For example: S0165-3806(96)00403-8, where S identifies that the item belongs to a serial publication, 0165-3806 is the ISSN, 96 is the year of publication, 00403 is the sequential number that identifies the item and 8 is the verifying digit.

    The [authgrp] comprises the elements individual author [author] and corporate author [corpauth]. The [author] (with the attributes occupation [role] and crossed identifier [rid]) is composed of the name model [] - surname [surname] and first name [fname], whereas [corpauth] is composed of the organization model [].

    Apart from the two groups of elements, DTD-SciELO Text contains one last element that is the model [i.float] composed of floating elements. The elements pertaining to this model may be inserted in any level of the structure.

This element possesses the attributes identifier [id], organization name [orgname], organization division 1 [orgdiv1], organization division 2 [orgdiv2] and organization division 3 [orgdiv3], which are used to identify the institution divisions, starting with the largest division.
