Detailed Presentation versus Ease of Search — Towards the Universal Format of Bibliographic Metadata. Case Study of Dealing with Different Metadata Kinds during Import to Virtual Library of Science
We divide the existing scientific publication metadata types into two classes: field based and free-text based.
