The value of αs is extracted from a global QCD analysis of experimental data on inclusive neutral-current (NC) and charged-current (CC) deep-inelastic scattering (DIS),c- and b-quark production in the NC DIS,c-quark production in the CC DIS, and W-, Z-boson, and t-quark production in (anti)proton-proton collisions with a simultaneous extraction of parton distribution functions(PDFs). The NNLO value of α(nf=5)s(mZ) =0.1147±0.0008(exp.)±0.0022(h.o.)is obtained with the uncertainty due to missing higher-orders (h.o.) being estimated as one half of the difference between the values of αs obtained in the NNLO and NLO variants of this fit. The masses of the heavy-quarks, charm, beauty and top, which are determined in parallel, are employed for cross-check of the theoretical framework consistency of the analysis.

Metadata are provided both in "article" format (very similar to INSPIRE) as this helps creating very compact bibliographies which can be beneficial to authors and readers, and in "proceeding" format which is more detailed and complete.
