2016 Journal of Library Metadata  
We propose a methodology for building consistent metadata for the description of scientific working documents.  ...  Because these situations and types are expressed by a set of metadata and then associated to current metadata, our proposal extends the nature of entities described by metadata to useful internal activity  ...  In the case of types, predicates are informed by external controlled languages which require a manual indexer decision.
