Open Issues

The initial focus of the Working Group was on capturing the complete bibliographic citation information for a journal article within the metadata for that article itself. This was extended to encompass citation information for references and other genres of bibliographic resources. Reference citation information may be encoded in the dcterms:references element refinement of dc:relation.
