Open Digital Forms

(1) , (1) , (1)


The maintenance of digital libraries often passes through physical paper forms. Such forms are tedious to handle for both senders and receivers. Several commercial solutions exist for the digitization of forms. However, most of them are proprietary, expensive, centralized, or require software installation. With this demo, we propose a free, secure, and lightweight framework for digital forms. It is based on HTML documents with embedded JavaScript, it uses exclusively open standards, and it does not require a centralized architecture. Our forms can be digitally signed with the OpenPGP standard, and they contain machine-readable RDFa. Thus, they allow for the semantic analysis, sharing, re-use, or merger of documents across users or institutions.
