Description:
The reference_key_id element provides the catalog with
an identifier for a reference document.  Additionally, it
may be used in various catalog descriptions, for example
in data_set_desc, as a shorthand notation of a document
reference.
The reference_key_id element is composed according to the
following guidelines:
1.  if there is an author for the publication, the general
rule is:
  REFERENCE_KEY_ID = <author's last name><year><letter>,
     where
     <author's last name> is a maximum of 15 characters,
          and may need to be truncated.
     <year> is 4 characters for the year published.
     <letter> is optional but consists of one character
           used to distinguish multiple papers by the
           same author(s) in the same year.
   The following variations apply:
   a.  If there is one author:
    <author's last name><year>
    Example value:  SCARF1980
   b.  If there are two authors:
    <first author's last name>&<second author's last name>
    <year>
    Example value:  SCARF&GURNETT1977
  c . If there are three or more authors:
    <first author's last name>ETAL<year>
    Example value:  GURNETTETAL1979
   d.  If one author has the same last name as another:
    <author's last name>,<author's first initial>
    <year published>
    Example value:  FREUD,A1935
   e.  If the same author(s) published more than one paper
    in the same year:
      <author's last name><year><letter>
      or
      <first author's last name>&<second author's last name>
      <year><letter>
      or
      <first author's last name>ETAL<year><letter>
    Example values:  SCARF1980A
                     SCARF&GURNETT1977B
   f.  In cases where an initial reference has been
    catalogued and published on an Archive medium and
    subsequent references for the same author and same
    year are needed at a later date, the following rule
    applies:
    Leave the original reference as is, and add a letter
    to the subsequent references starting with the letter
    'B' since the original reference will now be assumed
    to have an implicit 'A'.  For example:  PFORD1991,
    PFORD1991B.
    Note that if the initial reference has only been
    catalogued and not yet published, then it can be
    modified such that the 'A' is explicit, i.e.
    PFORD1991A.
2.  If there is no author for the publication, the general
rule is:
 REFERENCE_KEY_ID = <journal name><document identification>
 where
 <journal name> is a maximum of 10 characters, and
      may need to be abbreviated
 <document identification> is a maximum of 10
      characters.  This id may consist of a volume number,
      and/or document or issue number, and/or year of
      publication.
     Example values:  SCIENCEV215N4532
                      JGRV88
                      JPLD-2468
