Recent studies show that there is no method to develop a Dublin Core
Application Profile (DCAP). A DCAP is a very important construct to implement
interoperability, therefore it is essential to have a method to be able to develop such
a construct, in order to give DCAP developers a common ground of work. This
paper presents the first version of a method to develop Dublin Core Application
Profiles (Me4DACP V0.1) that has been developed in a PhD project with a Design
Science Research (DSR) approach. Me4DCAP was built having as starting point
the Singapore Framework for DCAP and shows the way through the DCAP devel-
opment. It encompasses a group of pre-defined interconnected activities, explicitly
states when they should take place, what techniques could be used to execute them
and what artifacts should result from their execution.
