The traditional publication will be overhauled by the ‘Enhanced Publication’. This is a publication that is
enhanced with research data, extra materials, post publication data, and database records. It has an
object-based structure with explicit links between the objects. In this book a state-of-the-art overview is given
of the structural elements of an Enhanced Publication, as well as publication models, interrelationship and
repository issues. The use of Enhanced Publications evokes questions on object models and functionalities.
In-depth study is made of these subjects. More practically, a sample is given of datasets together with
a demonstrator-project. In the final section, this book deals with long-term preservation issues, linking to the
developments of digital repositories that are studied in other books in this series.
