This paper describes the design of an electronic journals application where the article header information is held as Dublin Core metadata. Current best practice in the use of Dublin Core for bibliographic data description is indicated where this differs from pragmatic decisions made when the application was designed. Using this working application as a case study to explore the specification of a metadata schema to describe bibliographic data indicates that the use of Dublin Core metadata is viable within the journals publishing sector, albeit with the addition of some local, domain-specific extensions.
Keywords. Dublin Core, metadata, bibliographic citation, electronic journals.
