Language resource management — Persistent identification and sustainable access (PISA)
|Publication Date:||15 May 2011|
|ICS Code (Information sciences):||01.140.20|
This International Standard specifies requirements for the
persistent identifier (PID) framework and for using PIDs as
references and citations of language resources in documents as well
as in language resources themselves. In this context, examples of
language resources include such works as digital dictionaries,
language-purposed terminological resources, machine-translation
lexica, annotated multimedia/multimoda
This International Standard also addresses issues of persistence and granularity of references to resources, first by requiring that persistent references be implemented by using a PID framework and further by imposing requirements on any PID frameworks used for this purpose.
PID frameworks also allow the association of general metadata with the identifier, which can also contain citation information. This International Standard specifies minimum requirements for effective use of PIDs in language resources and cites the use of several possible existing standards and de-facto standards, such as: ISO 690, APA, MLA for citation information, ISO/IEC 21000-17, IETF RFC 5147, Annotea , temporal-fragment, XPointer for part identifier syntax and PURL, ARK , Handle System and DOI.
