[OAI-implementers] Scientific journal metadata
Fri, 01 Aug 2003 17:00:16 -0500
I'm implementing an OAI repository of scientific journals, but I'm not sure
what to do with the volume, issue and page metadata for the unqualified dc
format. I've read a few debates over this but I've not seen where it's been
I had thought about adding a bibiographic record in dc.source, as in...
<dc:source>Journal of Some Research 120(3), 133-165</dc:source>
But I can see arguments against this.
It seems logical to acknowledge that this metadata can not exist in
unqualified dc format, and encourage harvesters to use our more-specific
metadata format. This would mean unqualified dc from our repository would
be fairly useless.
Is this the accepted way to expose scientific journals through OAI?
