Field or missing metadata report

The field or missing metadata report gives details on metadata completeness and can be accessed by selecting the Green arrow right icon icon next to each member name in the depositor report. The fields checked are volume, issue, page, author, article title, and Similarity Check URL.

To see your field or missing metadata report, use this URL but replace 10.5555 with your prefix:

Field or missing metadata report by title

Select a title to retrieve a list of DOIs for the title, and flagged fields for each DOI. For example, the DOIs in this report lack page and author information:

Flagged fields for each DOI

Although the deposit section of the schema specifies that some bibliographic metadata is optional for content registration purposes, we strongly encourage members to register comprehensive metadata for each item registered.
