The best way to indicate the license is to include the definitive full license
URI in the @xlink:href attribute of the <license> element, the way itbs
shown in the example on the license page of the tag library

<license license-type="open-access"
  <license-p>This is an open-access article distributed under the terms of
the Creative Commons Attribution License, which permits unrestricted
use, distribution, and reproduction in any medium, provided the original
work is properly cited.</license-p>

In your examples, it looks like youbre just referring to the various
Creative Commons licenses, and those all have full URIs that you can use.

The problem with the @license-type attribute is that, since there arenbt any
universally-adopted set of values with defined definitions, it wouldnbt
really support machine-readability by, for example, other groups wanting to
re-use the content.

Is anyone capturing the type of Open Access (by, by-nc-sa, by-nc-nd  etc ) in
anything other than in @licence-type  in the <licence> element?
We are currently only capturing licence-type="open-access" as per
documentation examples , but have requirement now to identify type of OA.

The options I see are

1.  Capture<licence licence-type="by"  or "by-nc-nd" etc
2.  Capture<licence licence-type="open-access-by"  or "open-access-by-nc-nd"
3. Capture oa type in <licence licence-type="open-access"><licence-p
content-type="by">  etc
4. Capture <licence licence-type="by-nc-nd"><licence-p
5. Capture  <licence licence-type="open-access"><licence-p> and pattern match
for "by-nc-sa" in the URL declared in xlink:href  or in the URL declared in
the <licence-p>  e.g.

Any thoughts?
