ONIX Serials Online Holdings Message Formats

ONIX Serials Online Holdings A-to-Z

Version 1.1 User Guide

Date issued: October 2007

This User Guide has been prepared for the EDItEUR / NISO Joint Working Party for the Exchange of Serials Online Holdings Information by Katharina Klemperer, David Martin and Francis Cave. It is designed to accompany a machine-readable specification of the formats written in XML Schema, which has been developed by Francis Cave.

General guidance on schema use

This schema provides a formal specification of what constitutes valid use of XML to construct ONIX Serials Online Holdings (SOH) messages. As well as specifying the XML tags that may be used and in what sequence, it also specifies valid ranges of data values for data contained in XML elements, i.e. between matching pairs of XML tags.

The schema to which this document refers comprises four files which together form an XML document that conforms to the XML Schema Recommendation of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). The two files are:

Filename  Description of content
ONIX_SerialsOnlineHoldings_n.n.xsd  definitions of the message-level element and of complex types specific to SOH messages (the number 'n.n' is the version number of this schema)
ONIX_Serials_CodeLists.xsd  definitions of datatypes common to all ONIX Serials schemas.

For further information see XML Schema Part 1: Structures and XML Schema Part 2: Datatypes.

It is intended that this schema be used to guide implementation of systems for either originating or receiving SOH messages. Used in conjunction with a suitable “schema parser” it may also be used to validate the structure and contents of an individual message.

This schema defines how the substance, or “payload”, of SOH messages are to be represented in XML, but is silent on the question of how this message is to be conveyed from originator to recipient. It is likely that supply chain partners will need to adopt different approaches to message transport, packaging and delivery, depending upon the specific business systems in which this message format is being implemented.

Guidance on reading the message format specifications

In this user guide each successive XML element is illustrated by a graphic which shows any “child” elements. Clicking on any “child” element will take you to the description of that element. Clicking “Back” will return you to the “parent”.

If a “child” element is shown with a solid outline, the element is mandatory in any occurrence of the “parent”. If it is shown with a dotted outline, it is conditional in this context. If it is repeatable, the element box has the legend “1..∞” or “0..∞” immediately below it, indicating “mandatory and repeatable” or “conditional and repeatable”.

All data types are based upon built-in primitive data types defined in XML Schema Part 2: Datatypes. The names of all pre-defined data types are prefixed by “xs:” and include:

xs:stringa string of characters
xs:decimala number that may have a decimal part
xs:intan integer between -2147483648 and +2147483647 inclusive

Introduction

The ONIX Serials Online Holdings (SOH) format defines a family of XML messages used for communicating information about the holdings or coverage of online serial resources from a party that holds or supplies the resources to a party that needs this information in its systems. Please see the ONIX Serials Online Holdings Overview for a general introduction to the SOH messages and their applications. There are two messages currently defined:

Some words or phrases are used throughout ONIX for Serials with a very specific meaning. These are defined in the ONIX for Serials Glossary, and there are direct links from their first appearance in this text to the definition in the glossary.

ONIX Serials Online Holdings A-to-Z

<ONIXSerialsOnlineHoldingsAtoZ>

 

<ONIXSerialsOnlineHoldingsAtoZ> is the first and mandatory element in the opening “wrapper” of the message, specifying an ONIX SOH format applied to a “flat” AtoZ holdings list. The element carries a version number as an XML attribute “version”. This release of the User Guide describes version number 1.1, which is expressed as:

 

<ONIXSerialsOnlineHoldingsAtoZ version=”1.1”>

 

 

<ONIXSerialsOnlineHoldingsAtoZ>
<Header>

Mandatory in each SOH message

Not repeatable

 

The <Header> composite identifies and provides administrative information about the message as a whole. It can also be used to declare various defaults that will be assumed throughout, unless specifically overridden within the body of the message.

 

This composite identifies senders and receivers, including provision for coded <SenderIdentifier> and <AddresseeIdentifier> information, if business partners agree to follow this approach. It also carries a sequence number to enable tracking of exchanges, a date and time stamp, and an indication of whether the message conveys a complete replacement file or an incremental update list.

 

 

<ONIXSerialsOnlineHoldingsAtoZ> <Header>
<Sender>

Mandatory within <Header>

Not repeatable

 

The <Sender> composite identifies the sender of the message and provides basic contact details.

 

Example:

<Sender>

     <SenderIdentifier>

          <SenderIDType>07</SenderIDType>     07 = “SAN”

          <IDValue>1234567</IDValue>

     </SenderIdentifier>

     <SenderName>Oxford University Press</SenderName>

     <SenderContact>Subscriptions Department</SenderContact>

     <SenderEmail>subscriptions@oupjournals.org</SenderEmail>

</Sender>

 

<ONIXSerialsOnlineHoldingsAtoZ> <Header> <Sender>
<SenderIdentifier>

Optional within <Sender>

Not repeatable

 

The <SenderIdentifier> composite specifies a coded identifier for the sender organization. It is optional and non-repeating in any occurrence of the <Sender> composite, but either <SenderIdentifier> or <SenderName> (see below) orboth must be present.

 

The composite allows business partners to use standard or proprietary identifier schemes where these exist.

 

<ONIXSerialsOnlineHoldingsAtoZ> <Header> <Sender> <SenderIdentifier>
<SenderIDType>

Mandatory within <SenderIdentifier>

Not repeatable

 

<SenderIDType> is a code indicating the scheme or standard from which the sender identifier is taken. If <SenderIDType> is 01 (proprietary), then the name of the scheme should appear in <IDTypeName>.

<ONIXSerialsOnlineHoldingsAtoZ> <Header>
<CompleteFile/>

Optional within <Header>

Not repeatable

 

An empty element indicating that this message is a complete replacement list.

 

Each message must contain either <CompleteFile/> or <DeltaFile/> but not both.

 

Example:

<CompleteFile/>

 

<ONIXSerialsOnlineHoldingsAtoZ> <Header>
<DeltaFile/>

Optional within <Header>

Not repeatable

 

An empty element indicating that the message carries an incremental update list, consisting of new, updated and deleted holdings records, as indicated in <HoldingsRecord> <NotificationType>. Note, however, that all <HoldingsRecord> composites carried within a given delta file must themselves be complete, since updating at individual element level is not supported.

 

Each message must contain either <CompleteFile/> or <DeltaFile/> but not both.

 

Example:

<DeltaFile/>

 

<ONIXSerialsOnlineHoldingsAtoZ>
<HoldingsList>

Mandatory within <ONIXSerialsOnlineHoldingsAtoZ>

Not repeatable

 

In the ONIX SOH AtoZ listing, there is only one occurrence of the <HoldingsList> composite, since the message constitutes a single “flat” list. The <HoldingsList> consists of a group of hosted collections, each in an <OnlineService> composite, followed by a group of holdings records, each representing the holdings of an online resource.

 

 

Example:

This skeletal example illustrates the construction of the <HoldingsList> in an SOH AtoZ message:

There is one <HoldingsList> in an SOH AtoZ message.

At the top of the <HoldingsList> there is a list of <OnlineService> composites, representing the hosted collections to which the subsequent Serial Versions may belong.

There is one <HoldingsRecord> for each Serial Version.

Within <SerialVersion>, the <OnlinePackage> identifies the hosted collection in which the Serial Version is found, and shows coverage information for the Serial Version as found in that hosted collection.

If a Serial Version is found in more than one hosted collection, <OnlinePackage> is repeated.

 

Examples of <OnlineService>, <SerialVersion>, and <OnlinePackage> are found elsewhere in this document.

 

<HoldingsList>

     <OnlineService>description of first hosted collection</OnlineService>

     <OnlineService>description of second hosted collection</OnlineService>

     <OnlineService>description of third hosted collection</OnlineService>

     More Online Service composites could appear here.

<ONIXSerialsOnlineHoldingsAtoZ> <HoldingsList> <HoldingsRecord>
<SerialVersion>

Mandatory with <HoldingsRecord>

Not repeatable

 

Identification and description of the serial version whose holdings are represented in the <HoldingsRecord>. There will be at one and only one serial version in each holdings record.

 

It is important to understand that, in ONIX, a <SerialVersion> relates to a particular manifestation of a serial work, for example the online version of a named journal. Relative to this example, the printed version of the same journal would correspond to a different <SerialVersion>, as would another online version containing only the text of the journal articles but not the associated images. A print-plus-online combination for the same journal could well be a subscription product; but it is not itself a <Serial Version> though it may contain two or more serial versions.

 

 

<ONIXSerialsOnlineHoldingsAtoZ> <HoldingsList> <HoldingsRecord> <SerialVersion>
<SerialVersionIdentifier>

Mandatory within <SerialVersion>

Repeatable for identifiers with different IDTypes

<SerialVersionIDType>

Mandatory within <SerialVersionIdentifier>

Not repeatable

 

A code indicating the scheme or standard from which the serial version identifier is taken. If <SerialVersionIDType> is “01” (proprietary), then the name of the scheme should appear in <IDTypeName>.

 

ISSN (IDType = “07) should be used only if it identifies a serial version uniquely. That is, ISSN should not be used if the same ISSN has been assigned to all manifestations of a work (e.g. to both the print and online versions).

 

ISSNs are always sent in their unhyphenated form in ONIX.

<CoverageNote>

Optional in <OnlinePackage>

Not repeatable

 

A free text note clarifying any coverage information found in <PackageDetail>. This element is new in SOH release 1.1

 

 

<ONIXSerialsOnlineHoldingsAtoZ> <HoldingsList> <HoldingsRecord> <SerialVersion> <OnlinePackage>
<PackageDetail>

Optional within <OnlinePackage>

Repeatable

 

Details of the coverage and completeness of the full online content accessible for a serial version through the specified content hosting system. Repeatable if the package includes ranges with different levels of completeness and/or online formats. Either <PackageDetail> or <NoPackageDetail> must appear in <OnlinePackage>.

 

SOH release 1.1 includes the ONIX for Serials Coverage Statement within <PackageDetail>. <Coverage> is an XML structure capable of carrying simple or complex statements of holdings of serial resources. The Coverage statement is explained in detail at http://www.editeur.org/onixserials/ONIX_Coverage09.html.

 

<Coverage> replaces the functionality of <OnlinePackage><PackageDetail><JournalIssue> and <OnlinePackage><Embargo>.

 

SOH release 1.1 allows the expression of holdings through the use of either the <JournalIssue> and/or <Embargo> composites or the new <Coverage> composite within any given <OnlinePackage> composite. Therefore, if the <Coverage> composite is used, then neither <OnlinePackage><PackageDetail><JournalIssue> nor <OnlinePackage><Embargo> should appear. Conversely, if either <OnlinePackage><PackageDetail><JournalIssue> or <OnlinePackage><Embargo> appears, then <Coverage> should not appear.

 

That is, <PackageDetail> must include either <JournalIssue> or <Coverage>, but not both.

 

 

Example 1: In this example, the online coverage for this serial version starts with vol. 1, issue 1, and extends to the present, therefore there is no <JournalIssue> for the end of the range.

Content is delivered as both HTML and PDF, therefore <EpubFormat> is repeated.

 

<PackageDetail>

     <JournalIssue>

          <JournalIssueRole>04</JournalIssueRole>          04 = “Start of range”

          <JournalVolumeNumber>1</JournalVolumeNumber>

          <JournalIssueNumber>1</JournalIssueNumber>

          <JournalIssueDate>

               <Calendar>00</Calendar>                    00 = “Gregorian”

               <DateFormat>01</DateFormat>          01 = “YYYYMM”

               <Date>199802</Date>

          </JournalIssueDate>

     </JournalIssue>

     <IssueCompleteness>02</IssueCompleteness>          02 = “all articles”

     <ArticleCompleteness>01</ArticleCompleteness>     01 = “complete articles”

     <OriginalContent>02</OriginalContent>          02 = Includes original content not in print version

     <ContentDescription>Optional descriptive note</ContentDescription>

     <EpubFormat>01</EpubFormat>                    01 = “HTML”

     <EpubFormat>02</EpubFormat>                    02 = “PDF”

</PackageDetail>

 

Example 2: In this example, the <Coverage> composite is used instead of <JournalIssue>. <Coverage> is documented separately as ONIX for Serials: Coverage Statement.

     <Coverage>

          Examples of <Coverage> are found in the documentation for <Coverage>

<JournalIssueRole>

Mandatory within <JournalIssue>

Not repeatable

Three values are permitted:

04     From     (this <JournalIssue> composite represents the start of a range of issues)

05     To     (this <JournalIssue> composite represents the end of a range of issues)

06     To, and expected to continue (this <JournalIssue> composite represents the latest issue available, but the publication/subscription is ongoing, and the next issue is expected)

 

If the coverage is open (either to the present or to the present minus an embargo period), then only one occurrence of <JournalIssue> will appear, with <JournalIssueRole> = 04.

 

If the coverage is closed (the journal is not accessible after a certain issue), then a second <JournalIssue> composite will be included, with <JournalIssueRole> = 05.

 

Senders may indicate the latest issue available for an ongoing publication, by using a second <JournalIssue> composite with <JournalIssueRole> = 06.

 

05 and 06 should not co-exist in the same <PackageDetail> composite.
