Abstract | Semantic units are important aspects of digital curation. The concept of semantic units involves restructuring of data aimed at stakeholders including authors, publishers, data managers, repository managers, policy makers, users, etc. The purpose of digital curation is not only to preserve original values of resources but also to create added values for future information needs. In order to enhance semantic value of information a digital curation environment focuses on metadata i.e. information resources surrogates. The strengthening of the semantic aspects consists of the analysis of the original descriptive information and its restructuring into various semantic units. Although semantic units are dependent on the original information resource, they can be separated from the associated data and linked to external semantic units. In case of journal articles, the main title and authors can represent a main work, and abstracts can be another work of the same authors because the summary becomes a new work. References in the article also include several cited works. Authorities, such as name and subject authority files, can group different data across and beyond local data collections. Bibliographic references presented in information resources can also be used for citation analysis to establish meaningful relationships between works. The first step is to identify semantic units as a description of the original data. Then, in the curation process, the semantic units get enriched with further descriptive information. As the curation process continues, the semantic aspects of the data as a digital object becomes more emphasized.
