Dear all,

I am thinking about whether we should use NISO ALI with JATS, especially
for referencing to the public license (CC BY) of articles. I found this
recommendation in the JATS documentation:

JATS best practice is to omit the @xlink:href attribute from <license> if a
> NISO ALI ali:license_ref> is used.


However, I am not sure about the "if" part of this recommendation: Is
it advisable (or when is it advisable) to use NISO ALI (
https://www.niso.org/schemas/ali/1.0) ? My impression is that NISO ALI
until now is not widely adopted/supported.

Any thoughts on this? Thanks!
