Edition

  • Source: ISO 690, 4.5

  • Serialisation: bibitem/edition, bibitem/version, bibitem/date

Editions are modelled as free text, given the variety of ways they can be represented. For that reason, the full word "edition" needs to appear after any ordinal. The optional number attribute can be used to provide a numeric equivalent.

As described in Date Types, dates when a resource was last accessed are modelled as date[@type = "accessed"]; dates when a resource was last updated are modelled as date[@type = "updated"].

The version element can be used to give more detailed information about resource versions, including version numbers (drafts) and version dates (which are differentiated from date, since they are often used as version identifiers).
