the RIOXX metadata application profile and guidelines


The RIOXX metadata application profile and its documentation (this website) is maintained by Paul Walk at Antleaf.


The RIOXX Metadata Application Profile provides a mechanism to help institutional repositories comply with the RCUK policy on open access. RIOXX focuses on applying consistency to the metadata fields used to record research funder and project/grant identifiers and is designed to support the consistent tracking of open-access research publications across scholarly systems.


The RIOXX metadata application profile was developed by Paul Walk (while at UKOLN) and then EDINA) and by Sheridan Brown (Chygrove Ltd), working closely with RCUK who acted as sponsor and in collaboration with HEFCE who supported and endorse this work. This work was previously funded and supported by Jisc.
