Aim and Scope[edit]

The eSciDoc Application Profiles (AP) document the descriptive elements used by eSciDoc to describe its content entities, e.g. publications, organizations, etc. Additional information about objects (properties for items and its components) and structural relations between objects are also existing, but currently not considered in these APs. The APs are nowhere near to being complete yet.

In the first step, the APs are meant for documenting the existing xml schemas only. These documents should be the basis for all future communication about the metadata profiles in use, e.g. PubMan. We also expect that this approach will help us clarifying how to implement the requirements, thus the work will have certain impacts on the xml schemas.

The format of the table below follows the CEN Workshop Agreement 14855 for Dublin Core Application Profile Guidelines[1]
