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) containing extensive descriptive metadata.
