Rioxx: The Research Outputs Metadata Schema


The most important requirement for RIOXX is to provide a way to collect basic information about how research outputs (especially papers) have been funded. That is to say, we need to collect two types of information for a given paper: the funder the project or grant ID under which this research output was funded RIOXX has at its heart a simple application profile of Dublin Core, the better to fit naturally with existing technical infrastructure and to be easily implemented.

We are please to announce that version 0.8 of the guidelines and application profile is available for public comment. There is still some work to do, but we anticipate that the final version (1.0) will not depart from the current version significantly. Please do comment on this version - it is quite likely that this will be the final public consultation before we publish version 1.0. You can comment either directly on the page or by emailing one of the project team.
