Summary

A citation microformat needs to cover four uses:

  1. full, bibliographic citations, eg "The Title Of An Article. Smith J. Journal Title (1987). 46:1; 23-35." This is the main citation microformat and should contain all the information necessary to locate the item and create a text citation in all the common formats (MLA, ALA, etc).
  2. minimal, inline citations in text, eg (Smith, 1987). These generally link to an item in the bibliography using a fragment identifier.
  3. full, inline citations in text, eg following a blockquote.
  4. description of the current item/page, including title, creator, date etc. This is the same as the first use, but marked as 'self'.


Current problems

Microformat for inline citations

<cite>
<a href="#ref-1">1</a>
</cite>
<cite>
<a href="#ref-1">Smith, 2002</a>
</cite>


Microformat for a generic bibliography citation

<li class="citation" id="ref-1">
<span class="title">
 <a class="url" href="http://dx.doi.org/[DOI]">[item title]</a>
</span>
<span class="creator vcard">
 <span class="n">
  <span class="family-name">[surname]</span>, 
  <abbr title="[given-name]" class="given-name">[initial]</abbr>
 </span>
</span>
<span class="creator vcard">
 <span class="n">
  <span class="family-name">[surname]</span>, 
  <abbr title="[given-name]" class="given-name">[initial]</abbr>
 </span>
</span>
<abbr class="date-published" title="YYYY-MM-DDTHH:MM:SS+ZZ:ZZ">[year]</abbr>
<abbr class="uri" title="info:pmid/[PMID]"/>
</li>
Note: for an full inline citation, the
<li class="citation" id=""></li>
would be replaced by
<cite></cite>
and there would not be a link to a local fragment. Note: for a self citation, the
<li class="citation" id=""></li>
would be replaced by
<span|div class="citation self"></span|div>
