So if you want a flat / simplistic structure that does not surface any
structure in the relationship between the Periodical,
PublicationVolume, and PublicationIssue, the proposal as it stands
would use "isPartOf" to relate the Periodical, PublicationVolume, and
PublicationIssue to the Article, like the following:

<p>
<div itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/ScholarlyArticle">
<span itemprop="author">Carlyle, Allyson.</span>&quot:
<span itemprop="name">Understanding FRBR as a Conceptual Model: FRBR
and the Bibliographic Universe</span>&quot;
<div itemprop="isPartOf" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Periodical">
<em><span itemprop="name">Library Resources and Technical
Services</span></em></div>v.
<span itemprop="isPartOf" itemscope itemtype="PublicationVolume"><span
itemprop="volumeNumber">50</span></span>, no.
<span itemprop="isPartOf" itemscope itemtype="PublicationIssue"><span
itemprop="issueNumber">4</span>(<span itemprop="datePublished">October
2006</span></span>):
<span property="pageStart">264</span>-<span
property="pageEnd">273</span></div> Print.</p>

issueNumber and volumeNumber have rangeIncludes directives that limit
them to PublicationIssue and PublicationVolume respectively, so
"sufficiently distinctive" doesn't really matter; using those
properties directly on Article would simply be an error.

Does that work for you?
