Scholars Portal is not dependent on, nor restricted to any particular file formats upon producer deposit, it aims to use well-known, widely accepted formats that support long-term preservation. If a publisher wants to use a specific format not meeting these criteria, an agreement must be reached between the producer and SP. The repository does, however, require producer-supplied XML or SGML (in a format agreed upon between SP and the producer, usually ISO 19115 NAP Compliant XML metadata) containing extensive descriptive metadata. Documents explaining this in greater detail are available belowThese conditions are specified in the Scholar's Portal/Producer Agreements.

Please see the documents below for more detail.
