NISO TR-05-2013, IOTA Working Group Summary of Activities and Outcomes


The purpose of the IOTA (Improving OpenURL Through Analytics) project was to analyze the quality of the metadata that is passed to the link resolver from the OpenURL source and develop a standardized metric for such quality evaluation. The project focused most of its attention on a specific genre of OpenURLs—those intended to provide access to journal articles. This report summarizes the work of that three-year project  and the development of the Completeness Index metric that can be used to measure and compare different provider's OpenURL metadata.
