I'm wondering how I can store metadata of a normal publication like Journal, Volume, Issue, Page numbers. Title and Author are already possible. Also, is there a way to import/export this metadata from/to EndNote?
To store custom metadata ,you need to define some custom types and deploy them to alfresco,about how to define and deploy ,please refer to http://docs.alfresco.com/5.0/concepts/dev-extensions-content-models-tutorials-intro.html
Alfresco support import acp/content in file system to repository ,and export nodes to acp or file system using related tools。
Thanks a lot! That's really helpful.
Whenever any external content is loaded in alfresco based on type of document it invokes related metadata extractor within Alfresco. Meta data extractor extract those details like name, title, author etc.. from document and map it with Alfresco content model and set as metadata on top of new node(For newly uploaded content) created within alfresco.
Now Alfresco could handle most of the well known file formats like doc, pdf etc.. but if you are dealing with file extension like endnote (*.enl) and wants alfresco to extract all metadata then you will have to create your own metadata extractor. Then needs to create new content model to accommodate those additional properties which are not available within alfresco you will have to create custom content model in alfresco as kayne zhang has suggested.
