SWORD has a long history in the Open Repositories space, and has quietly provided the backbone for a lot of integrations and interoperability efforts over the past 10 years. This new version (SWORDv3) aims to modernise the standard, using a more pure RESTful approach, JSON instead of XML, and a focus on supporting Research Data Management, very large files, and Linked Data use cases. Meanwhile a significant effort to find SWORD a sustainable home and opportunity for ongoing support and development in the community is also taking place. Combined, these factors place SWORDv3 very much in the core conference theme of making “open” sustainable.
