Good thought, Adrian. Bibtex is used a lot. I believe that your example 
has the same problem as my example, as pointed out by Gregg - the 
connection between the article, the journal itself, the volume of the 
journal, and the issue.

If you look at how episodes have been defined (e.g. radio episodes) [1] 
you see something that I think looks more like what you were getting at. 
That "journal" in the Bibtex case means "journal in which this article 
is published" in the same way that the episode model uses "partOfSeries".

The advantage of that solution (and I'm sure that there are 
disadvantages as well) is that the order of the schema.org statements is 
not necessary to the semantics of the statements.
