SWORD v2.0: Deposit Lifecycle - white paper

[Apologies for cross-posting]

Dear All,

To coincide with the OR10 conference this week in Madrid, we have produced a white paper which discusses
some options for the next steps in the SWORD standard.  This paper has been written based on work carried out
at Symplectic over the past year, with significant influence and feedback from Jim Downing, Graham
Klyne, Stuart Lewis, Adrian Stevenson, Paul Walk and David Flanders, as well as with support from UKOLN
and JISC.

The aim of the paper is to stimulate discussion around introducing more complete treatment of "deposit
lifecycle" management of objects in digital repositories, and to propose the next small steps in this
direction.  There will be a sword workshop during OR10, and we'd like to get some discussion going there
about this topic, so if you would like to join us and bring your thoughts that would be fantastic.  If you are
not going to be at OR10 (or even if you are), please do feel free to share any comments on this list or on the
jiscpress instance (where the paper can be downloaded):

Please do feel free to share this further with other communities and lists which may be interested.

All the best,

Richard Jones
