<entry-title> Citation microformat efforts </entry-title>

This wiki page outlines the overall effort to develop a citation microformat per the process.

We are documenting current examples of cites/citations on the web today, their implicit/explicit schemas, and current cite/citation formats, with the intent of creating a citation microformat based on that research.

Example Citations

Citation Examples are citations found in the wild that could benefit from semantic mark-up. This is a growing list of examples from all sorts of places including W3C specifications, RFCs and others. These are the examples which will determine the schema for the citation microformat.

Known Citation Formats

The Citation Formats Page will be a running tab of known formats for publishing citations.

It could be useful to create a chart of how each value from the implicit schema determined by the citation-examples is represented in each format, and what formats have additional properties that do not map between them. (For example, Format1 calls 'author' 'author', in format2 'author' is called 'writer'. etc)

Brainstorming

Issues

The citation-issues page is intended to capture ongoing issues.

To Do

Modularity

This microformat should be developed as a module that can be used in other microformats. Once developed and flushed out, citation references could easily be used for publications on a Resume/CV (e.g. in an hResume), therefore the citation microformat would be a module (subset) of all the possible Resume Values.

Other Microformats that could use the Citation Module

  • hAtom, e.g. inside of blog posts to infer a structure of which posts are about which other posts.
  • hResume
  • work-of-art

Other microformats that the Citation Module could/should re-use

  • hCard encodings for things like Author, Publisher (people and companies)
  • hAtom encodings for author/date-time properties
  • rel-tag and "category" encoding for keywords, if any
  • rel-license encoding for copyright, if any

Informative References

Most of these should be moved to citation-formats and documented accordingly.

Public Domain Contribution Requirement. Since the author(s) released this work into the public domain, in order to maintain this work's public domain status, all contributors to this page agree to release their contributions to this page to the public domain as well. Contributors may indicate their agreement by adding the public domain release template to their user page per the Voluntary Public Domain Declarations instructions. Unreleased contributions may be reverted/removed.

  • Tantek: I release all my contributions to this specification into the public domain and I encourage the other authors to do so as well.
  • Brian Suda: I release all my contributions to this specification into the public domain and I encourage the other authors to do so as well.
  • Ed Summers: I release all my contributions to this specification into the public domain and I encourage the other authors to do so as well.
  • Michael McCracken: I release all my contributions to this specification into the public domain and I encourage the other authors to do so as well.
  • ... feel free to similarly add yourself if you're in the pre-2007-12-29 edit history, and preferably add the PD template to your user page e.g. see User:Tantek for an example to edit/copy-paste.

It's been long enough that we should begin going through the edit history and removing/replacing pre-2007-12-29 content in order to bring this page fully into the public domain. Tantek 00:53, 20 July 2011 (UTC)

  • PD cleared from beginning to 2006-02-14T16:59:21
  • To Do: clear edits from 2006-02-14T16:59:22 to 2007-06-26T21:55:41 (some of those edits may have ended up in other pages like citation-examples, citation-formats, citation-brainstorming so be sure to check to see if contributions propagated there).
    • As you remove/replace non-PD contributed content accordingly, please update the date range on this to do item.

Once the entire history has been PD-cleared, we can remove the Authors and Copyright sections, and simply include the PD template {{cc-pd-license}} instead.
