A representation of a Key/Encoded-Value pair is generated by concatenating the contents of the first four columns of a row that begins with an ampersand in the Matrix below. The ordering of KEV pairs is not important. Rows which have '#' in the first column are comments and should not be included in the representation.

The following data types are provided for the values of the Keys, which must be URL-encoded:

<data> Character string
<id> Character string for an Identifier (Z39.88-2004, Part 1, Section 7)
<fmt-id> Character string for a Format Identifier (Z39.88-2004, Part 1, Sections 12 and 13)
<m-key> Character string for a Metadata Key (Z39.88-2004, Part 2, Section 7.1)
<url> Character string for a URL
<date> Character string representing a date to the complete date level of the W3CDTF profile of ISO 8601, of the form: [ YYYY-MM-DD | YYYY-MM | YYYY ]
<time> Character string representing a date and time to the seconds level of the W3CDTF profile of ISO 8601, of the form: [ YYYY-MM-DDThh:mm:ssTZD | YYYY-MM-DD ]

The Matrix

Delim Key Equals Value Min Max Description
& aulast = <data> 0 1 Author's family name. This may be more than one word. In many citations, the author's family name is recorded first and is followed by a comma, e.g. Smith, Fred James is recorded as "aulast=smith"
& aufirst = <data> 0 1 Author's given name or names or initials. This data element may contain multiple words and punctuation, e.g. "Fred F", "Fred James"
& auinit = <data> 0 1 Author's first and middle initials.
& auinit1 = <data> 0 1 Author's first initial.
& auinitm = <data> 0 1 Author's middle initial.
& ausuffix = <data> 0 1 Author's name suffix. Qualifiers on an author's name such as "Jr.", "III" are entered here. e.g. Smith, Fred Jr. is recorded as "ausuffux=jr"
& au = <data> 0 1 This data element contains the full name of a single author, e.g. "Smith, Fred M", "Harry S. Truman".
& title = <data> 0 1 Disseration title.
& co = <data> 0 1 Country of publication, e.g. "United States".
& cc = <data> 0 1 Country of publication code, in ISO 2-character format, e.g. "US".
