SWORD white paper: relevant to ADMIRAL?

I've just read through a white paper about directions for the SWORD deposit protocol: http://sword2depositlifecycle.jiscpress.org/

I'm recognizing many of the discussion points we've been having about the submission API for ADMIRAL to the library service RDF Databank appearing here:

  • submitting datasets as packages of files
  • selective updating within dataset packages
  • accessing manifest and content
  • accessing metadata about the package
  • etc.
I'm not advocating at this stage that we should be trying to track the SWORD word, but I do think we should try to ensure that noting prevents us from creating a full SWORD interface to RDF databank at some stage in  the future.
