NISO Updates Its Access & License Indicators Recommended Practice
NISO (National Information Standards Organization) published an updated version of its Access & License Indicators (ALI) Recommended Practice, which originally came out in 2015. It “defines the metadata indicators used to indicate free-to-read content, as well as for linking to license terms for the use/re-use of that content.” New to this version are “metadata and indicators that allow content metadata users to filter or target subsets of license information. Content platforms and other applications can use this additional information to determine which of the asserted license or sharing indicators have relevance to their particular context.”
For more information, read the press release.
