Dear all,

we are working on a large bibliography, listing articles, books and
journals.

For each article (bookSection) we are creating a single
biblStruct-element (<biblStruct type="bookSection">). While <analytic>
stores the title information for the article, <monogr> stores the
information for the superordinate book. If more than one article is part
of the same book, the information in <monogr> will be doubled for each
article (bookSection). We are looking for a way to avoid this redundant
storage of information. The monographic level information should be
maintained only in one place.
How are other projects dealing with this? Are there any best practice
solutions you could point us too?

See the following examples, where the information is doubled for two
articles contained by the same book:

bookSection 1

<biblStruct type="bookSection" status="published" xml:id="luhmann_1970_AB1">
<analytic>
<author><name
key="#luhmann_niklas"><forename>Niklas</forename><surname>Luhmann</surname></name></author>
<title level="a" type="main">Funktion und Kausalität</title>
<idno type="nl_bibl_dammann">1970_AB1</idno>
<textLang mainLang="de"/>
</analytic>
<monogr>
<title level="m" type="main">Soziologische Aufklärung. Aufsätze zur
Theorie sozialer Systeme</title>
<title level="m" type="sub"/>
<imprint>
<pubPlace>Köln/Opladen</pubPlace>
<publisher>Westdeutscher Verlag</publisher>
<date type="pubYear">1970</date>
<biblScope unit="page">9-30</biblScope>
</imprint>
</monogr>
</biblStruct>


booksection 2

<biblStruct type="bookSection" status="published" xml:id="luhmann_1970_AB2">
<analytic>
<author><name
key="#luhmann_niklas"><forename>Niklas</forename><surname>Luhmann</surname></name></author>
<title level="a" type="main">Funktionale Methode und Systemtheorie</title>
<idno type="nl_bibl_dammann">1970_AB2</idno>
<textLang mainLang="de"/>
</analytic>
<monogr>
<title level="m" type="main">Soziologische Aufklärung. Aufsätze zur
Theorie sozialer Systeme</title>
<title level="m" type="sub"/>
<imprint>
<pubPlace>Köln/Opladen</pubPlace>
<publisher>Westdeutscher Verlag</publisher>
<date type="pubYear">1970</date>
<biblScope unit="page">31-53</biblScope>
</imprint>
</monogr>
</biblStruct>

We are looking for a way to avoid these identical <monogr>-elements. Our
solution should be usable in the Author Mode of oXygen for a team of
editors. So far, we are making use of XInclude. See the
following examples:

article 1:

<biblStruct type="bookSection" status="published"
xml:id="luhmann_1970_AB1" corresp="#luhmann_1970_B1">
<analytic>
<author><name key="#luhmann_niklas"><forename>Niklas</forename>
<surname>Luhmann</surname></name></author>
<title level="a" type="main">Funktion und Kausalität</title>
<idno type="nl_bibl_dammann">1970_AB1</idno>
<textLang mainLang="de"/>
</analytic>
<xi:include href="luhmann_1970_B1.xml" parse="xml"
xpointer="monogr_luhmann_1970_B1"/>
<citedRange unit="page">9-30</citedRange>
</biblStruct>

superordinate book:

<biblStruct type="book" status="published" xml:id="luhmann_1970_B1">
<monogr xml:id="monogr_luhmann_1970_B1">
<author><name key="#luhmann_niklas"><forename>Niklas</forename>
<surname>Luhmann</surname></name></author>
<title level="m" type="main">Soziologische Aufklärung. Aufsätze zur
Theorie sozialer Systeme</title>
<title level="m" type="sub"/>
<idno type="nl_bibl_dammann">1970_B1</idno>
<textLang mainLang="de"/>
<editor><name key="#"><forename/><surname/></name></editor>
<edition/>
<imprint>
<pubPlace>Köln/Opladen</pubPlace>
<publisher>Westdeutscher Verlag</publisher>
<date type="pubYear">1970</date>
<biblScope unit="volume"></biblScope></imprint>
</monogr>

These are our problems:

* If we create one biblStruct-element for the article and one for the
book, the <monogr>-element of the superordinate book can be included in
the biblStruct element for the article using XInclude. The file is
validating and the Author Mode in oXygen shows the superordinate
information in detail. But we are facing problems in making this doable
for our editors (oXygen Author Mode cannot edit XInclude elements and
resolve them at the same time, naturally).

* If the monographic level information is externalized, the information
concerning the range of pages can no longer be placed within <monogr>,
because the information clearly links to the article. But <biblScope>
outside <monogr> isn't valid either. The use of <citedRange> could be an
alternative technically, but seems to a misuse here, with regards to
it’s intended meaning.

Any hints are welcome!
Thank you very much and best regards,

Martina
