      Hello,

      I would like to know how to use the tag <Genre> under the
      <DescriptiveMetadata>? Is it suitable to store the information about the
      type of the source e.g. Preiodical, Newspaper, Magazine, News Agency, Web
      Site, Broadcast etc? If not, where is the suitable place to put this
      information in NewsML? Thanks in advance.

        Hi,

        This is an excerpt from the draft NewsML guidelines; the final version
        could be slightly modified:

        The optional and repeatable Genre element indicates the “style of
        expression” used in the constituents of a NewsComponent. The Genre
        element is empty; the proper genre is represented via the FormalName and
        associated vocabulary attributes.

        The IPTC maintains a set of Genre values (e.g. ‘Current’, ‘Analysis’,
        ‘Feature’, ‘Obituary’, ‘Profile’, ‘Interview’ etc.), along with their
        descriptions, in the “topicset.iptc-genre.xml” topicset. The values of
        this metadata should cover any media handled as data content, be it
        text, photo, audio or video.

        Dublin Core: Genre has the same semantics as the Dublin Core ‘type’
        property; “The nature or genre of the content of the resource”.

        Default value: if no Genre is included, the default value is ‘Current’.


        Newspaper, News Agency ... are information about a source or target of
        news:

        If it is about the source, the AdministrativeMetadata/Source fits, even
        if it should contain more precise information (e.g. the name of a
        company):

        The optional and repeatable Source element identifies the source (an
        individual and/or company or organization) who provided source material
        for the constituents of a NewsComponent. The optional NewsItem attribute
        must be present in the case of a syndicated NewsItem. It provides the
        URN of the NewsItem that is being syndicated (the source NewsItem).

        Note that a sequence of Source elements can be used to indicate the
        sequence of syndicators through which a NewsComponent has passed. The
        first Source party appearing in the collection was the first syndicator
        in the chain. Again, a Comment can provide any additional relevant
        information.
