DSPACE metadata and Google scholar

From an email Julie sent

I came across this info on some DSpace list, and thought it might help our cause with getting GS to better index AgEcon and the UDC: Providing metatags used by Google Scholar for enhanced indexing Maybe it's old news to those in the know. I was rummaging around looking for info about DSpace and Zotero.

I checked the link and there is a desire for DSPACE to provide this out of the box.

Other results issues How do I improve the accuracy with which Google Scholar lists my papers? In general, this is rather difficult, because a lot depends on the accuracy with which your papers are referenced by others. However, if you have separate web pages for each of your papers, then Google Scholar advises that you can add several meta tags to your pages to help Google's crawler to list your paper. In particular, they recommend using the following tags (replace the content="..." bits with your own information): <meta name="citation_journal_title" content="Journal Name"> <meta name="citation_authors" content="Last Name1, First Name1; Last Name2, First Name2"> <meta name="citation_title" content="Article Title"> <meta name="citation_date" content="01/01/2007"> <meta name="citation_volume" content="10"> <meta name="citation_issue" content="1"> <meta name="citation_firstpage" content="1"> <meta name="citation_lastpage" content="15"> <meta name="citation_doi" content="10.1074/jbc.M309524200"> <meta name="citation_pdf_url" content="http://www.publishername.org/10/1/1.pdf"> <meta name="citation_abstract_html_url" content="http://www.publishername.org/cgi/content/abstract/10/1/1"> <meta name="citation_fulltext_html_url" content="http://www.publishername.org/cgi/content/full/10/1/1"> <meta name="dc.Contributor" content="Last Name1, First Name1"> <meta name="dc.Contributor" content="Last Name2, First Name2"> <meta name="dc.Title" content="Article Title"> <meta name="dc.Date" content="01/01/2007"> <meta name="citation_publisher" content="Publisher Name">
