The open access application format is an integrated exchange format that improves the management and exchange of content. It can enable Web sites, archives, or search engines to be able to perform automatic processing, indexing, and presentation of content. This method also allows the interoperable exchange of content between providers or between users. For the scientific community, this capability would enhance the visibility and comparability of the content and thus improve the organization and exchange of scientific literature. This would be helpful not only for the scientific community, but also other communities and organizations whose goal is to efficiently distribute and exchange open content.
