Includes: alternate format; simultaneously released edition.
The alternate relationship involves manifestations that effectively serve as alternates for each other. The alternate relationship obtains, for example, when a publication, sound recording, video, etc. is issued in more than one format or when it is released simultaneously by different publishers in different countries.

Valid Use: Manifestation to Manifestation [N.B. Manifestation-to-manifestation relationships normally involve manifestations of the same expression. (i.e. Manifestation(1.1.1) to Manifestation(1.1.2)) though this is not a necessary condition.]
