Mark, Pieter,
Good point well made. Thank you
I will have to consider further.

Dear all,

I agree with Mark that if the id that we are talking about is not an id of the
article but rather the id of a different version of that article, then
related-article would seem a better fit.

So, if you're using JATS 1.2 Publishing (Blue) then my initial recommendation
stands. That solution leverages the semantics of the element (article-id)
while allowing differentiation via the pub-id-type and assigning-authority

If you are restricted to JATS 1.1 Publishing (Blue) then, despite what the
documentation says (!!!), you have to either abuse the specific-use attribute
(totally warranted in this case) or choose a different element to represent
that information. Because your stated use is machine processing, standardizing
on another element might be a good choice.

The scandalous yet understandable usage could be:
<article-id pub-id-type="art-access-id"

I don't think that's a good solution but, it's expedient and straightforward
to code for. With any luck you'll have moved on to your next job before it
came around to bite you.

Another element that also appears in article-meta is related-object. You can
use that element to store all sorts of related entities. For example:

<related-object object-type="preprint" object-id="576355"
object-id-type="bioarxiv-id" specific-use="external-linking"/>

related-object takes a long list of attributes you can employ to specify the
semantics of the usage. The related-object content model is defined in the
file JATS-related-object1.ent. All of the attributes defined specifically for
that tag (vs. the imported ones) are CDATA, not a fixed list.

You'll no doubt have endless hours of fun working out the particulars :-)

I think the related-object solution is more durable if using JATS 1.1 Blue.

I'm out of ideas.

Hi All

I really like the idea of preserving the
entire bioRxiv ID as an <article-id>, there
can be dozens of <article-id>s as needed.
