DCMI Usage Board publishes review of SWAP profile

Tuesday, March 03, 2009

The Usage Board has published a review of the Scholarly Works Application Profile (SWAP), which was found to conform to the profile review criteria in all respects but one. The specific point on which SWAP does not follow the criteria relates to the matching algorithm specified in the Description Set Profile specification, currently still a working draft on which feedback is being sought. The issue could be resolved either by a small revision in SWAP or by a change in the matching algorithm.
