Assumptions of DWBP WG

  • DWBP metadata recommendations refer to metadata available in a structured format.
  • Structured metadata may be associated with data of any format (including non-structured formats).
  • DWBP data recommendations refer to data that can be made available in a structured format.
  • DWBP does not recommend any particular format, but may give examples of formats as part of BPs.
  • DWBP can refer to / recommend specific W3C Standards in the BPs, but it must also be possible to use non-W3C standards


  • Versioning of datasets, vocabularies and APIs
  • Datasets in a structured format
  • Feedback
  • Data archiving/preservation
    • How data is managed in an offline repository is out of scope, however, what is left on the Web after archiving has taken place *is* in scope, e.g. the persistence of URIs.


  • Details of any one particular format
  • SLAs
