This document has just been released by the PerX Project (a project funded by JISC, as part of the UK Digital Repositories Programme).
It is an advocacy document, aimed at content providers of various kinds (for example - journal publishers, professional societies and database providers and owners) who may have descriptive data (metadata) available for the actual content they produce. It introduces the various benefits of sharing metadata, in standardised and reusable ways, with other websites. It explains how sharing metadata can result in increased exposure and visibility of the actual content, whether that content itself is freely available, available to subscribers, or available via pay-per-view.
The document is intended primarily for a non-technical audience who may require an overview for decisions regarding the best means of exposing metadata. It may also be of interest to anyone with an interest in digital repositories.
