    EMBL Content Meta Properties

    npm version


    These meta tags describe the role of page within the EMBL information architecture.

    These consist of:

    • Content descriptors
      • embl:who the people, groups and teams involved
      • embl:what the activities covered
      • embl:where at which EMBL sites the content applies
      • embl:active which of the above three facets is most important for this content
    • Content role:
      • embl:utility if content is task and work based or if is meant to inspire
      • embl:reach if content is externally (public) or internally focused (those that work at EMBL)
    • Page infromation:
      • embl:maintainer the contact person or group responsible for the page
      • embl:last-review the last time the page was reviewed or updated
      • embl:review-cycle how long in days before the page should be checked
      • embl:expiry if there is a fixed point in time when the page is no longer relevant

    These tags should be placed in your <head>.

    Why do they matter?

    1. Ensures future quality of content
    2. Will be programatically queried by other patterns to offer contextually-appropriate content and navigation
    3. Can affect the look and feel of content
