  1. This type allows us to group associated citations together. At present we do not give a citationMode property to a CiteGroup since they will almost always be parenthetical as opposed to narrative. In other words, it usually only makes sense for individual Cite nodes to be narrative (although they may be connected together within content using words such as "and").
  2. Available as JSON-LD.
  3. Available as JSON Schema.
