Satellites, the Elsevier Format for Ancillary Information to Scientific Journals and Books

David Kuilman, Martin Ruck


Elsevier presents the Satellite format -- a linked data compliant data format to capture, store and expose metadata objects using open standards based metadata frameworks e.g. SKOS, DCMI and SWAN. The satellite format allows for an array of configurable features to be defined on a perproject basis to specify the metadata object and its required business usage. A key use case presented in detail is the modeling of tagging information sourced by text mining and content enhancement suppliers to persist scientific document annotation expressed in RDF, linking text strings within the document to concept URIs in scientific vocabularies.
