Hi Chris,

Thanks, we are already capturing the full uri as per your example, but
left it out for space. Initially I thought we needed to extract the "by"
etc from this uri, however looking at this again, we could probably just
pass the uri as a parameter value in the feed as it does indeed describe
the type of OA licence.

The best way to indicate the license is to include the definitive full
license URI in the @xlink:href attribute of the <license> element, the way

it?s shown in the example on the license page of the tag library (

<license license-type="open-access"


  <license-p>This is an open-access article distributed under the terms of

the Creative Commons Attribution License, which permits unrestricted

use, distribution, and reproduction in any medium, provided the original

work is properly cited.</license-p>


In your examples, it looks like you?re just referring to the various
Creative Commons licenses, and those all have full URIs that you can use.

The problem with the @license-type attribute is that, since there aren?t
any universally-adopted set of values with defined definitions, it
wouldn?t really support machine-readability by, for example, other groups
wanting to re-use the content.

Is anyone capturing the type of Open Access (by, by-nc-sa, by-nc-nd  etc )

in anything other than in @licence-type  in the <licence> element?

We are currently only capturing licence-type="open-access" as per
documentation examples , but have requirement now to identify type of OA.

The options I see are

1.  Capture<licence licence-type="by"  or "by-nc-nd" etc

2.  Capture<licence licence-type="open-access-by"  or
"open-access-by-nc-nd" etc

3. Capture oa type in <licence licence-type="open-access"><licence-p
content-type="by">  etc

4. Capture <licence licence-type="by-nc-nd"><licence-p

5. Capture  <licence licence-type="open-access"><licence-p> and pattern
match for "by-nc-sa" in the URL declared in xlink:href  or in the URL
declared in the <licence-p>  e.g.

Any thoughts?
