PIDs in Dublin Core

The Dublin Core Metadata Initiative (DCMI) acts as steward for the ubiquitous Dublin Core Metadata Terms[^1]. Over the last few months, DCMI has been approached, independently, by several organisations (all working int he area of scholarly communications) seeking a recommendation on how best to represent PIDs with Dublin Core properties in XML-based metadata records. As an activity, scholarly communications still relies heavily on the exchange of metadata in XML, and properties from the Dublin Core vocabularies are widely used in this metadata. DCMI's response to this was to start a discussion, beginning with the gathering of "user-stories", leading to a position paper which was created to seed discussion at a working meeting at the DCMI conference in Porto in September 2018. Several key organisations with an interest in this space (e.g. CrossRef, ORCID, OpenAIRE, Elsevier etc.) were represented at the meeting. The discussion was very fruitful, and a broad consensus was reached. This presentation will present the consensus view from that meeting, offering a candidate recommendation for the general treatment of PIDs with Dublin Core properties in XML-based metadata, with a few worked examples from familiar use-cases in the domain of scholarly-communications.
