Ace SMART — User Guide

Adding Publication Information

The first tab presented when you begin a new report shows the metadata that was discovered in the EPUB publication.

The first field in this section identifies the format of the EPUB publication:

EPUB format configuration with options for EPUB 2 and 3

The selected format does not change the evaluation criteria, but it does control the output format of the optional metadata that can be generated from the tool (i.e., discovery and conformance metadata for the package document).

The rest of the metadata does not affect the evaluation of the publication, but is used in the output report you can generate at the end of the evaluation. It is recommended that you verify the information is correct and complete, but you can skip this step if you do not intend to generate a final report.

Text inputs for title, author, identifier, publisher, dates, subject and description

In addition to the provided fields, it is also possible to add optional metadata using the text box at the end of the form. To add such metadata, type a human-readable label followed by a colon, a space, and then the value.

Optional metadata box contains the text 'Subject: whaling'

Note: As the optional metadata is for human consumption, it is not recommended to use property names (e.g., use a label like "Created On" instead of "dcterms:created").

After verifying the metadata, it is time to begin the manual evaluation process.
