Connecting Authors and Repositories Through SWORD
MetadataShow full item record
By incorporating SWORD support into an add-in for Microsoft Word, it is now possible for authors to deposit articles to Information Repositories directly from their word processor. Furthermore, in order to simplify and make the submission process as transparent as possible, the SWORD related information can be incorporated into template files, so that all that is required from authors is to click a button. Additionally, since templates can incorporate semantic information, articles can be validated against the template as part of the submission process, enabling authors to correct errors prior to submission, which should result in a higher level of metadata and compliance of the content submitted to repositories. Also, through the add-in, author metadata can be gathered in a largely automated fashion, reducing duplication in data entry and author aggravation.
