English abstract

This paper reports on the progress of an extension to a journal publishing system (OJS) to add RDF aggregation. The system is a lightweight open source repository solution with full CMS features for devolved publishing, a new semantic module is in development for enhanced navigation, searching and for content re-purposing. African Journals Online is used as the example live installation of the extended OJS. Further functionality is being developed to aggregate the large existing metadata resource as a RDF Store, which can be queried using RDQL, to uncover underlying data relationships expressed via formats such as FOAF, or for reuse via RSS. In order to preserve data relationships when harvesting the existing OAI:PMH interface now offers RDF format metadata and an extension of the set support within the OAI protocol has been prototyped.
