Report Preparation for Delivery

The report (for the project, Bachelor or Master thesis) has to meet up to date publication standards:
  1. The report has to have a Uniform Resource Names (URN)
  2. Research data (calculations, data, statistics) going along with the report has to be published before the report is finalized and has to be identified with a Digital Object Identifier (DOI)
  3. The report has to have a Documentation Page behind the Title Page(s) and before the Abstract. The Documentation Page shows standard text in which the actual URN and DOI are embedded.
  4. Metadate describing the report formally has to be generated.


1) A Uniform Resource Name (URN) for the Report

You have to use a Uniform Resource Name (URN) for your report. A URN is a persistent identifier that will never break (if properly maintained), so that anyone can always refer to this name. You will later link to your report e.g. like this: http://nbn-resolving.org/urn:nbn:de:gbv:18302-aero2017-12-13.019 . This is an example of a URN as used by Prof. Scholz at HAW Hamburg:


The URN is part of the URL (the link). The last digit is called check digit. The date in the URN (above: 2017-12-13) is the delivery date of your report (as given on its front page). This is the date you (intend to) submit your report. Get your unique URN and put it into your report:

Buttom CalculateURN


2) Digital Object Identifier (DOI) for Published Research Data

Also the DOI is a persistent identifier that will never break (if properly maintained), so that you can always refer to this name. Prof. Scholz will store your research data for you in the Harvard Dataverse. You will later link to your research data e.g. like this: http://doi.org/10.7910/DVN/2HMEHB . This is an example of the DOI from Harvard Dataverse:


The DOI is part of the URL (the link). If you do not have any reseach data to publish, you can skip this point.


3) Documentation Page

Get the template:
Word TitleAndDocumentationPage.docx    Size:  812K
It is for a project, but the documentation page would be the same also for a thesis. Put the generated URN and the DOI (if you have research data) into the documentation page!


4) Submit Metadata

Some data is in German. Skip this (input xxx in the form), if you are not able to provide this data.

This is what needs to be considered / provided to me:

4.1) 3 Dewey Decimal Classifications (DDC) and 3 related German "Sachschlagwörter" (GND) [also called: Sachschlagwort (SWS)] from:
PDF/A Klassifikation_DDC_629.13.pdf    Size:  373K
Select e.g. 2 from the scientific field and one from the aircraft type under consideration.

4.2) One more (Nr. 4) Sachschlagwort (GND) (to give more freedome to describe everything of importance).

4.3) A class from Regensburger Verbundklassifikation (RVK):
PDF/A Klassifikation_RVK_ZO7000.pdf    Size:  231K

4.4) 4 Standardized English Keywords from FAST (Faceted Application of Subject Terminology) / Library of Congress Subject Headings (LCSH). See Link below!

All the data will be on the Landing Page for the report in the end. It will be available for Google & Google Scholar and will be used for the uploads to the DNB and the Repository in Hannover.
Example: LandingBurzlaff.html

The Logo

Logo Landing Page

The logo is the symbol for a landing aircraft. It links to the topic of this repository: "aviation". Moreover, the logo stands here for the collection of landing pages. Landing pages contain the (machine-readable) metadata to feed especially Google Scholar. As such, landing pages are key for the documents to be precisely found on the Internet Also Google Custom Search - searching locally in this repository - depends to a large extend on what is contained on the landing pages.
