Index — The index includes tag names, element names, attribute names, parameter entity names, elements from other vocabularies that may be familiar to JATS users, and synonyms to many JATS element name.

Element Context Table — The Context Table describes where each JATS element may be used. The table is formatted in two columns:

The first column

(“This Element”) names an element

The second column

(“May Be Contained In”) contains an alphabetical list of all the elements in which the element named in the first column element may occur.

The letters of the alphabet in the NAVBAR and at the top of each page are links directly to the elements which start with that letter.
