The following tree displays the structure of an Outbreak Article. Fields are displayed bold. Fields and categories (which contain fields) have the corresponding tag in parentheses. The tags for categories all begin with C..

For example, if you want to find the word test in the field at document position OutbreakArticle/About/Title, search for TI:test or search for ti:test.

Some fields can occur many times in an Outbreak Article, while some others might be omitted. This is noted in another pair of parentheses with the min and max values. If not otherwise noted, fields and categoriees appear exactly once.

Additional Information:

Flag: This is a type of quality measure for a number, so there must be a number field related to this flag. (Convention is to name the fields ...Number, ...Flag, e.g. FatalityTotalNumber and FatalityTotalFlag.)

Number fields must be related to a main field, e.g. PGF is related to RE, FTN is related to NOC.
