E-ARK Project Deliverable D5.3 - E-ARK Pilot DIP Specification has now been published.

The primary aim of this deliverable is to present the pilot version of the E-ARK Dissemination Information Package (DIP) formats. The secondary aim is to describe the access scenarios in which these DIP formats will be rendered for use. The deliverable is a revision of the deliverable D5.2 E-ARK DIP Draft Specification, which was published in June 2015.

The pilot version of the DIP formats will be used in the E-ARK pilots that are specific to Access. Feedback from these pilots will be taken into account to amend the specification of the formats where necessary. The result of these alterations will result in the final DIP format specifications that are due in January 2017.
