XMP Labelling for Nature


I just blogged a short piece 'XMP Labelling for Nature' [1] to say that we
have started publishing PDFs with (meaningful) XMP payloads in Nature
magazine, and will be rolling this out across our other titles in the coming
weeks and months.

What that post didn't go into was the actual metadata being added. Below is
a sample from an article in the current issue of Nature (vol. 456, num.
7224). The sample shows the XMP in RDF/N3 which is a tad easier on the eye
than RDF/XML. :)

Model constraints are generally due to the XMP profile of RDF. The small
miracle here is not that this is any chiselled piece of RDF but that it even
exists at all.
