Draft Citation Standards for Public Comment

ACProctor : June 30, 2017 8:13 am : Announcements
FHISO has reached an important milestone by releasing its very first draft standards for public comment.
 
1) Citation Elements: General Concepts

Presents the relationship between formatted citations and citation elements; presents a model for layered citations; presents a solution for replicated data in different languages or scripts; discusses subtyping, extensions, constraints, and cardinality; describes preservation of structure in list-flattening formats; provides all needed information for creating serialization formats and data model bindings.

2) Citation Elements: Bindings for RDFa

Presents a data model binding and serialization as RDFa attributes in HTML or XML, and thus for semantic markup of a formatted citation in HTML. An example of a list-flattening format and proof of concept that the concepts document is sufficient to define a data model binding.

Technical Priorities and Work Process

Richard Smith : February 17, 2016 6:12 pm : Announcements

The TSC have agreed on a new set of priorities for technical work, which are discussed in more detail in our strategy paper. In preparation for this work, the TSC have drafted a policy on the use of vocabularies. We would welcome discussion of these on the tsc-public mailing list.

The Board and TSC have recognised that FHISO’s by-laws, the TSC charter, and the TSC operations and policy manual were designed with a large organization in mind and are impeding work with the present number of volunteers. We plan to adopt a much less structured, more volunteer-based interim process until our governance structure is overhauled, and technical work towards our priorities will occur in a “committee of the whole” on the tsc-public mailing list.

The minutes of the January board meeting are also now available.
