From XMetaDiss to XMetaDissPlus

Under the extended statutory deposit obligation for publications from institutional and specialist repositories, the XMetaDiss format of this standard has been expanded to XMetaDissPlus. The limitation of XMetaDiss to dissertations and post-doctoral theses has been withdrawn. The scope has been extended by means of a "Common vocabulary of publication types" to include types of documents such as pre-prints, essays, research reports etc. There are two delivery procedures for university dissertation and thesis publications: the web form and the OAI interface.
