Specs and Guidelines
Over the past two years the nextPub Initiative has developed a family of specifications that form a framework to enable a new publishing paradigm for design-based publications such as magazines and display books. When the nextPub Initiative began, the immediate goal was to make multi-channel publishing both simple and efficient. That is, to meet the iPad challenge. But as the Working Group explored standards and technologies, strategists began to envision monetizing content beyond today’s publishing channels. Strategists began talking about developing a “Dynamic Content Architecture” from which new publishing channels can spring by assembling and delivering new content collections based on topics pulled from a multitude of magazine titles or based on personal preferences foretold by Flipboard, Pulse or Zite models. Based on this more aggressive vision, nextPub developed a set of specifications, known as the PRISM Source Vocabulary that serves as the basis for dynamic content publishing framework.
Four documents are included in PSV 1.0:
The PSV V1.0 and associated PRISM 3.0 Specifications were published in September 2012. A new version PSV 1.1 will be published in the Spring of 2012. This version includes an enhanced model for including outside metadata fields in PRISM Source Vocabulary.
