This page details the work being undertaken to move ReDBox form fields into closer alignment with common ontologies/vocablaries.
Whilst ReDBox does not make rigorous use of these technologies, the efforts to align our form data is an attempt to provide clarity to the community as well as make downstream conversions easier to metadata outputs such as VIVO.
To clarify the information below it helps to be aware of a few design choices/contraints we operate within:
We are also using a 'redbox' namespace to cover any fields we couldn't find good alternatives for. For the moment there is no specification for this namespace, and we may never have one if we can phase out its usage.
Please feel free to propose additional namespaces or alternatives we missed that cover things under 'redbox' (including the ANDS-VITRO namespace as soon as it has a home on the web)... although we are trying to stick to significant implementations, not little local yokels.
This is a summary of the complete list with links to each field.
