Z39.80 Tagged Bibliographic Standard

When printing and e-mailing citations, you may choose to include bibliographic "tags" in the body of the e-mail message. The tags are based on the Z39.80 standard maintained by the National Information Standards Organization (NISO). Receiving periodical bibliographic information in a standardized form makes it easier for you to save the record into a personal database of citations (using ProCite, EndNote or other type of bibliographic management package).

Selecting this option will format the citations as text only and will first include the selected citation, abstract or full-text article formatted using an alphabetic listing of Z39.80 tags. The 'ZZ' tag will mark the end of the tagged information. Then the complete Gale listing for the same record will appear.
