NISO Now Seeking Comments on Content Profile/Linked Document Standard Draft
NISO (National Information Standards Organization) made its draft Content Profile/Linked Document (CP/LD) standard open for public comment through May 12, 2023.
NISO notes the following:
The new NISO CP/LD standard will provide a flexible industry standard for linking and combining academic, research, and professional content, data, and semantics. It defines a machine-readable, self-describing, standards-based markup format that can be used to exchange data between systems, APIs, and services. CP/LD is not intended to replace existing models used for journal articles, books, data sets, or semantic and metadata schemes. Instead, this new standard enables arbitrary portions of content, data, semantics, and other resources from separate sources to be combined into a single, standards-based format optimized for interchange, search, and display. Stratification of the document into different layers or roles—content, structure, narrative data, and semantic data—is key to the CP/LD standard, allowing the specific requirements for each role to be addressed.
