4. Development of standard vocabulary

For these interactions to scale beyond a single system to system interaction and be adopted across a distributed network of repositories and peer review services, there is a need to define and adopt a controlled vocabulary that will standardise the requests and responses between the repository and overlay service.

In the table below we provide some examples of notifications that will need standard vocabularies. These vocabularies will be defined in the next phase of development and implementation of this model.
