Scholars Portal Definition of DIP
1. Dissemination Information Package (DIP)
- OAIS describes a DIP as "the Information Package, derived from a part, or all, of one or more AIPs, received by the Consumer in response to a request to the OAIS."
- Scholars Portal's DIPs are always generated from a single AIP/single article.
- User access to archival objects is generally provided through the Scholars Portal website (http://journals.scholarsportal.info/), or through an OpenURL resolver service referring the user to the same.
- The user is first authenticated, and will, depending on their level of access, see basic article metadata, article abstract (if it was included in the archival XML), and a link to the PDF article and HTML full-text article, as available.
- Articles for which full-text XML metadata was provided will have additional information available through Scholars Portal in the form of references, tables, and figures.
- Context information is provided in the form of links to other articles in the same issue of the journal, and the complete run of journal issues.
- The DIP is retrieved using the URI for the corresponding AIP. In turn, the AIP contains metadata tying it back to the SIP.
