Abstract:This paper presents a standards‐based approach to specifying and reasoning about metadata constraints based on existing metadata registry standards, existing terminologies and Common Logic. The paper introduces Common Logic's basic principles and theory, and applies it to several examples where we might want to reason about metadata constraints. It is our expectation that these additional constraints will be developed by the makers of the metadata for a given data source, and will be included in a metadata registry for exchange with any subscriber to the metadata.

- International Journal of Metadata, Semantics and Ontologies aims at publishing research advances and discussions about meta-data in a broad sense, and about their associated semantics and ontological structures, from a multi-disciplinary perspective, and with an emphasis on domain-specific ontologies and organisational, human interaction and social issues regarding metadata annotation, use and assessment. It also intends covering Semantic Web research, as a concrete metadata-intensive technological framework in which shared and standardised semantics are a critical issue.
