 Hi Franziska, Mike,

While this doesn't directly address Franziska's question, I do want to
point out that the JATS 1.2d1 draft has four new attributes for keywords
and subjects. These are modeled in NISO STS 1.0 (which went to NISO
member vote yesterday). Please see
l , attributes vocab and vocab-identifier
attributes vocab-term and vocab-term-identifier

Similar new attributes appear in the subj-group and subject elements.

These new attributes come out of a number of parallel discussions
including how to best tag keywords, subjects, and ics codes in standards,
and how to tag CRediT taxonomy in JATS.

The JATS4R group may want to consider these attributes as they tackle
Subjects and Keywords

Best regards,

  Hi Franziska,
  A good question.

  We are not capturing the nested-ness of MSC codes, but do declare
  using @content-type if a <kwd> is primary or secondary.  This is
  partly because the allotment of codes is not entirely standardized
  across titles.  So this is not a recommendation!  Perhaps your first
  example would work if you also used @content-type on <kwd>?
  JATS4R will be tackling the topic of Subjects and Keywords and would
  very much like to have input like this.

  Subject: [jats-list] Primary and Secondary MSC tagging

  Dear all,

  when we have Classification Codes as follows:

  Mathematics Subject Classification 2010
  Primary: 00A09; Secondary: 26A33, 35R11

  Are there any recommendations how to tag this?

  I would go within <nested-kwd> as this is the only way to have a
  <kwd-group kwd-group-type="MSC">
  <title>Mathematics Subject Classification 2010</title>

  But then I am missing the terms Primary and Secondary, which
  might now always be obvious. So, ideally, there should be something
  like nested kwd-groups:

  <kwd-group kwd-group-type="MSC">
  <title>Mathematics Subject Classification 2010</title>
  <kwd-group kwd-group-type="MSC">
  <kwd-group kwd-group-type="MSC">
  (or something similar to that)

  How do you handle this?

  Best, Franziska
