Hi all,

I want to suggest that in addition to copying the index-term model from BITS
to JATS the model can be improved by including the new optional vocab
attributes. The index-term model can be used to generate indexes linking to
specific points in an article within a particular collection of articles as
the original requestor has described. Adding the vocab attributes would allow
defined vocabularies and persistent identifiers to be included when tagging
index terms which would enable more sophisticated linking, and could
potentially enable linking and discovery across corpuses using shared

Specifically, the changes to the model would be:

Element <index-term> would take on attributes @vocab and @vocab-identifier.

Elements <term>, <see> and <see-also> would take on the attributes @vocab,
@vocab-identifier, @vocab-term, and @vocab-term-identifier.

Thank you, that is exactly what I wanted to know. (And what an impressive
application: I love it!)

(I am sending a copy of this to the JATS Standing Committee private list
(jats-sc@xxxxxxxxxxxxx<mailto:jats-sc@xxxxxxxxxxxxx>) because it seems likely
that there are members of the Standing Committee who do not read JATS-List.)

whether the need for a back-of-the-book type of index for journals was for
referencing back to parts *inside* an article or only pointing from the index
back to *entire* articles. Below is the answer from the original requester Jan

specific place in the article. In some cases, mainly in longer articles,
"zones" of texts are pointed to: a (part of a) paragraph, or in some cases a
set of paragraphs, which explains the "page ranges" in the index. Although
referencing a larger zone is an important feature, it is never intended to
reference a full article.

consider for e.g. an archive or online collection."
