Type of Publisher

Type of publisher or publishing organization of a work being cited (for example, “ government ”, “ standards-body ”, “ university ”, “ commercial ”, “ foundation ”, “ private ”, “ corporate ”).


The @publication-type, @publisher-type, and @publication-format attributes replace the @citation-type attribute of prior versions, which provided no clear way to distinguish these different notions.
