Any organization that has digitized and documented scientific content
on an online platform can provide its collections to OpenArchives.gr
as long as their content meets some basic specifications.
- The harvesting of metadata will be done through the OAI-PMH
protocol, which is a very popular metadata delivery protocol now
supported virtually by all repositories and digital libraries.
- Metadata should be made available via OAI-PMH as XML,
preferably in one of the following formats: OAI-DC, Qualified
DC (QDC), HEAL, MODS,
ESE or EDM.
- From the Dublin Core fields (basic Metadata Element Set or
DCMI Metadata Terms Set), you should at least have the value of the
core fields: dc: title, dc: type, dc: subject, dc (dc: description
or dcterms: created or dcterms: temporal), and dcterms: spatial, and
dc: description or dc: tableOfContents or dcterms: abstract, :
creator or dc: contributor)
If you do not know if your collection meets the required technical
specifications, please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org.
