Cite Group

A group of Cite nodes.

This type allows you to group associated citations together. When some content in a Creative Work cites more than one reference for a particular piece of text, use a CiteGroup to encapsulate multiple Cite nodes. 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").

This schema type is marked as unstable ⚠️ and is subject to change.
