A citation elements vocabulary

This is an exploratory draft of material intended to form part of a FHISO Citation Elements standard. This document is not endorsed by the FHISO membership, and may be updated, replaced or obsoleted by other documents at any time.

creatorName and sub-elements

Name http://terms.fhiso.org/sources/creatorName
Range http://terms.fhiso.org/sources/AgentName
Cardinality multi-valued
Translatability translatable
Super-element none

In the definition of this element and its sub-elements, the word agent is used to mean a person, organisation, or other entity capable of independent or autonomous action.

An "other entity capable of independent or autonomous action" might include sufficiently sophisticated software, such as computer translation software.
This definition of an agent is aligned to the Agent class in [FOAF].

The creatorName element contains name of an agent who created or contributed to the creation of the source. Many sub-elements are provided for many specific types of creator, and where appropriate these are preferred to the creatorName super-element.

Many of the following sub-elements have similar or even overlapping meanings, and there may be several plausible choices to describe a particular creator. Where possible, the description the creators used to describe themselves should be followed.

Sub-elements of creatorName

http://terms.fhiso.org/sources/abstratorName
The abstractorName element contains the name of an agent responsible or jointly responsible for creating abstract of another source — a shortened versioned containing all the important detail.
http://terms.fhiso.org/sources/artistName
The abstractorName element contains the name of an agent responsible or jointly responsible for
http://terms.fhiso.org/sources/authorName
The authorName element contains the name of an agent responsible or jointly responsible for creating a significant portion of original content in a written source.
The authorName element should also be used to describe the creator of a written source
http://terms.fhiso.org/sources/compilerName
The compilerName element contains the name of an agent responsible or jointly responsible for creating a source by compiling content from many other sources.
http://terms.fhiso.org/sources/composerName
The composerName element contains the name of an agent responsible or jointly responsible for creating a source which is a piece of music.
The composerName element has been included largely for compatibility with [CSL] and other vocabularies that have such a role. It is not anticipated that it will be used much.
http://terms.fhiso.org/sources/directorName
The directorName element contains the name of an agent responsible for directing the production of a film or other audio or visual source.
http://terms.fhiso.org/sources/editorName
The editorName element contains the name of an agent responsible or jointly responsible for selecting, preparing or editing the content of a source.
http://terms.fhiso.org/sources/editorTranslatorName
The editorTranslatorName element contains the name of an agent reponsible or jointly reponsible for the translation of a source from another language or languages, and who was also had a major role in selecting or preparing the choice of material for translation.
The editorTranslatorName element has been included largely for compatibility with [CSL]. It combines the roles of the editorName and translatorName elements, and should only be used when the editorial aspect is significant. Usually the translatorName element is more appropriate.
http://terms.fhiso.org/sources/editorialDirectorName
The editorialDirectorName element contains the name of an agent responsible or jointly responsible for the overall vision and editorial policies applied across a large number of a publisher's publications.
The editorialDirectorName element has been included solely for compatibility with [CSL]. Few if any style guides include it.
http://terms.fhiso.org/sources/illustratorName
The illustratorName element contains the name of an agent responsible or jointly responsible for illustrating a written or visual source.
http://terms.fhiso.org/sources/indexerName
The indexerName element contains the name of an agent responsible or jointly responsible for creating a source which is primarily an index of one or more other sources.
http://terms.fhios.org/sources/intervieweeName
The intervieweeName element contains the name of a person who is a subject of an interview, and where the source is a transcript, recording or other representation of that interview.
http://terms.fhiso.org/sources/interviewerName
The interviewerName element contains the name of an agent responsible or jointly responsible for asking questions during an interview, and where the source is a transcript, recording or other representation of that interview. A citation element set containing an interviewerName should normally also contain one or more intervieweeName citation elements identifying who was being interviewed.
http://terms.fhiso.org/sources/transcriberName
The transcriberName element contains the name of an agent responsible or jointly responsible for creating a written source which is primarily a verbatim or near-verbatim transcription of one or a small number other sources.
This definition needs to be clearer on the distinction between compilation and transcription.
http://terms.fhiso.org/sources/translatorName
The translatorName element contains the name of an agent reponsible or jointly reponsible for the translation of a source from another language or languages.

This list of sub-elements is somewhat based on the list of roles in [CSL]. No decision has yet been taken on whether complete harmonisation is desirable.

CSL's collection-editor and container-author have been omitted pending a decision on how to deal with more general matters with containment.

CSL's original-author and reviewed-author have been omitted, as it is FHISO's current intention to store translations and reviews using layers.

No use cases have been found to warrant the inclusion of CSL's editorial-director. Applications converting it to FHISO citation elements should treat it as editor or collection-editor, or drop it.
