OpenAIRE Guidelines version 4.0 literature repositories
OpenAIRE is developing a new application profile for literature repository content providers. This is a major update of the current OpenAIRE Guidelines v3.0. The to be released metadata application profile for literature repositories will re-use elements from the Dublin Core and DataCite metadata schema complemented by specific elements and attributes not covered sufficiently by these schemes.
“The OpenAIRE and formerly DRIVER-Guidelines for Content Providers have been providing orientation for repository managers to align local and regional metadata management policies for the purpose of a pan-European Open Access network realized by the OpenAIRE infrastructure. The guiding principle has been always to reuse widely established standards, such as Dublin Core, in combination with a set of controlled vocabularies, such as info:eu-repo”.
