Purpose• Help the scholarly publishing community develop a more standardized approach for supplemental materials• Rapidly changing technology environment• Lessen burden on all parties in publishing process• Help materials add substance to scholarship• Make these materials more discoverable• Aid in preservation of these materials
General principles of RP (12)• Respectful of variance in issues across disciplines and types of content• Determination of materials is responsibility of journal• Intended to address content owned, published and hosted by journal publisher• Data constitute a unique category of content – in general management of data is out of scope
Part A: Policies• Selection• Editing• Managing and Hosting• Ensuring discoverability and fundability (references, A&I, citations)• Metadata and packaging• Maintaining links,• Providing context• Preserving materials• Rights management
Part B: Technical Considerations• Metadata• Elements• Persistent identifiers• Preservation• Packaging and exchange• Location of material• supporting documentation – non-normative DTD to express metadata recommendations – a tag library to serve as an easy guide to the DTD - visual schema representation of the DTD and an HTML representation of the DTD – examples of metadata markup
