Scholars Portal Definition of SIP
1. Submission Information Package (SIP)
o The information package that is delivered to Scholars Portal for use in the construction of one or more AIPs.
o The format of the SIP may vary from provider to provider, based on the publisher's willingness and ability to provide the content and metadata in a specific format.
o In all cases, the level of content the publisher will provide will be specified in the OCUL License agreement, or in a document supplementing the same.
o For preservation, Scholars Portal requires PDF versions of the content, and publisher-supplied XML or SGML (in a format agreed upon between SP and the publisher) containing descriptive metadata and full-text content is strongly encouraged.
An example SIP is attached to this document.
