Abstract

We divide the existing scientific publication metadata types into two classes: field based and free-text based. The division is based on origins of data, however they correspond to the main functions of digital libraries: data presentation and search services. These classes are compared to present their advantages and disadvantages. Our own format, BWMeta, is presented and shown to have the advantages of both previously described classes. Another important quality of BWMeta is displayed, which is good preservation of information.
