Topic 1

  • Additional tag file with basic (mandatory) metadata following datacite standard
    • Place in separate folder? Check if this allowed by BagIt
      • Allowed, suggestion: META-INF (see recommendations document)
  • Add platform information somewhere (later)
  • Additional file containing mapping of schema URL to other tag files (still open)?

Topic 2

  • Define platform identifiers (including version)
  • MUST have metadata-datacite.xml
  • Invenio uses json-schema to serialize to datacite
  • Internal-Sender-Identifier not usable for identifying the sender
    • Sender-Identifier -> standardize
  • Resource identifier DOI (datacite.xml) too restricted, use alternate identifier at this point
  • Missing points?
    • Fetch can be supported as long as URLs are permanent
    • Versioning might be missing
    • New development for DSpace (plausible, but ‘big’ effort)

Topic 3

  • Next meeting at 13 September, 2 pm UTC
