“Education doesn't make you happy. And what is freedom? We don't become happy just because we are free, if we are. Or because we have been educated, if we have. But because education may be the means by which we realize we are happy. It opens our eyes, our ears. Tells use where delights are lurking. Convinces us that there is only one freedom of any importance whatsoever: that of the mind. And give us the assurance, the confidence, to walk the path our mind, our educated mind, offers.”
Added in September 2014, Europe PMC’s RESTful Web Service has a Dublin Core response, complementing existing XML and JSONformats. The new response is compliant with the Dublin Core Metadata Initiative (DCMI), which supports shared innovation in metadata design and best practices across a broad range of purposes and business models. For many organisations this format is the most acceptable way to exchange article metadata, and for this reason we wanted to implement the response in our service.
Earlier this year the World Health Organization (WHO), a Europe PMC funder, made use of the service’s Dublin Core format to populate their DSpace Institutional Repository for Information Sharing (IRIS – hence the only slightly tangential quote by Iris Murdoch!).
