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
, 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 hierarchy:
<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-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
