Europeana Publishing Guide

The Europeana Publishing Guide outlines the criteria for submission of metadata to Europeana. We will work with you to make sure that your datasets meet our publication criteria. Because good data gives audiences a better experience and a greater connection with your collections.

We hope that the clear criteria will help you as data partners understand what we need to ensure that your digital data is always seen to be authentic, trustworthy and robust by our audiences. The acceptance criteria are based on real-life examples as well as existing documentation and policies (e.g. EDM mapping guidelines & Europeana Licensing Framework).

To accommodate new developments, all acceptance criteria will be reviewed quarterly and new criteria may be added where necessary. Partners will be notified of any new versions of the Europeana Publishing Guide.
