datacite-metadata-generator

This is a single HTML form which can be used to generate DataCite Metadata Kernel 4.0 XML. Metadata is generated by populating text boxes and selecting values from drop-downs. The results can then be saved to a file. The main goal of this form was to create a tool which does not require any installation, extra libraries, or an application server, just download and go.

Download:

Download Here (right click and use 'Save As', make sure extension is .html)

How to use:

  • Download datacite-metadata-generator.html.
  • Open using a browser (Firefox/Chrome/Opera recommended, or IE8+).
  • Start creating metadata.
  • Use 'Select All' button to copy and paste results or 'Ready to Save' button to save results to a file.

Uses:

  • HTML5
  • CSS3
  • JQuery 3.1.1

Notes:

  • Currently the 'save to file' feature does not work in Internet Explorer or Safari.
  • The form does not perform any XML validation or validation against the DataCite schema.

To Do:

  • Enable 'save to file' feature in Internet Explorer and Safari.
  • XML and schema validation options.
  • Try to integrate schema documentation to add context to input fields.
