A message term for doi:kernelMetadata.
A complex element describing a name or title by which a creation is known.
Comments The distinction between 'name' and 'title' is a matter of convention: published creations such as books, serials, CDs, DVDs or broadcast programmes normally have 'titles', but other creations such as websites or datasets more commonly have 'names'. There is no functional difference.
