  6. 6. Storylines "The News Storyline Ontology is a generic model for describing and organising the stories news organisations tell. The ontology is intended to be flexible to support any given news or media publisher's approach to handling news stories. At the heart of the ontology, is the concept of Storyline. As a nuance of the English language the word 'story' has multiple meanings. In news organisations, a story can be an individual piece of content, such as an article or news report. It can also be the editorial view on events occurring in the world." From BBC's Storyline ontology http://www.bbc.co.uk/ontologies/storyline/2013-05-01.html For more, see Robin Pembrooke's Storyline blog post http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/internet/posts/Storyline © 2013 IPTC (www.iptc.org) All rights reserved 6
  7. 7. Storylines in rNews • rnews:Storyline properties – rnews:description – rnews:name – rnews:slug • Add rnews:slug (a new property) to rnews:NewsItem • We have also discussed this change with Schema.org http://dev.iptc.org/rNews-12-CR-1003-add-storyline © 2013 IPTC (www.iptc.org) All rights reserved 7
