Metadata for Automatic Delivery
The German National Library has developed metadata core sets for monographic and periodical online publications. These stipulate what metadata are required for the delivery of online publications via the automated delivery procedures.
The metadata core set for monographic online publications is applicable for monographs, audio books and university dissertations and theses:
Delivery of metadata for monographic online publications to the German National Library: Metadata core set monographs, audio books and university dissertations and theses (available only in German) urn:nbn:de:101-2018050704
The metadata core set for periodical online publications is applicable for journals:
Delivery of metadata for periodical online publications to the German National Library: Metadata core set journals (available only in German) urn:nbn:de:101-2018050715
To determine which elements must or should be included when submitting online publications, the German National Library has compiled documentation on the bibliographic metadata standards that can currently be processed automatically. This documentation should be used together with the above-mentioned core sets.
ONIX for Books 2.1
Metadata documentation for the format ONIX 2.1, Version 2.0 from 11.03.2015 (available only in German) urn:nbn:de:101-2015030200
Metadata documentation for the format XMetaDissPlus, Version 1.1 from 12.03.2012 (available only in German) urn:nbn:de:101-2012022237
Under the extended statutory deposit obligation for publications from institutional and specialist repositories, the XMetaDiss format of this standard has been expanded to XMetaDissPlus. The limitation of XMetaDiss to dissertations and post-doctoral theses has been withdrawn. The scope has been extended by means of a "Common vocabulary of publication types" to include types of documents such as pre-prints, essays, research reports etc.
MARC 21 - MARCXML
Metadata documentation for the format MARCXML, Version 2.1 from 17.07.2017 (available only in German) urn:nbn:de:101-2017011938
Comprehensive information on MARC standards (Library of Congress): MARC Standards
Comprehensive information on changeover to MARC 21: Changeover to MARC 21
NISO JATS 1.0
Metadata documentation for the format NISO JATS, Version 1.0 from 12.01.2017 (available only in German) urn:nbn:de:101-2016092604
NISO JATS 1.1 (2016) is the most recent version and is fully backward compatible with NISO JATS 1.0 (2012) and NLM 3.0 DTD (2008). Due to the marginal differences between versions 1.0 and 1.1 at the element level, NISO JATS version 1.0 Journal Publishing DTD (also known as "Blue DTD") is used for delivery to the German National Library. It should be noted that NLM 3.0 DTD is not backwards compatible with previous versions of NLM DTD.
The NISO JATS elements as described in this document are based on the Journal Publishing Tag Library NISO JATS version 1.0, available at https://jats.nlm.nih.gov/publishing/tag-library/1.0/index.html.
NISO JATS 1.0 Publishing DTD is available at the following URL: https://jats.nlm.nih.gov/publishing/1.0/dtd.html.
