ESA and other societies are moving towards the publication of data papers that include more complete narratives about a data set and its importance and use. An ESA committee has recommended that a new data paper publication be created, and that it use EML and other related metadata standards to create the papers. To support that, EML would need to be extended to support descriptive fields desired in data papers but not yet in EML. These would be optional to support backward compatibility. Below is a list of the fields required for a data paper, and notes on each as to its disposition in EML.
Other fields that could be added:
These include a new ability to use Bibtex citation format both within the `citation` element, and within a new `bibtex` element, to create lists of refs using these in a literatureCited element (#300), as well as in usageCitation (#259), and referencePublication (#277) elements. All of this helps support data papers (#269), for which pandoc-style citation keys can be used to cite these references in the text of Markdown blocks in the EML document. Added these features as demonstrations in the eml-data-paper.xml sample document.
