Masner, J., Jarolímek, J. and Kánská, E. (2018) “Novel Approach for Creation, Storage and Presentation of Online Information Content", AGRIS on-line Papers in Economics and Informatics, Vol. 10, No. 3, pp. 69-77. ISSN 1804-1930. DOI 10.7160/aol.2018.100306.


The paper provides an overview of a methodology for creation, storage and presentation of online information content (in World Wide Web environment). It is primarily intended to be utilized by open source content management systems and applications for publication of articles, news, papers etc. Open source software and, in particular, content management systems are broadly used in areas such as agriculture, rural development, public and non-profit sector. The methodology covers processes of content creation and updating in general, storage structure and presentation with consideration for sharing and exchanging possibilities. Authors can benefit from easier content creation process as well as consistent output visibility in real time. Structured and standardized storage structure can simplify development of modules, extensions or application libraries. Moreover, the process of CMS (or application) upgrade or transition to a different one which utilizes the methodology and its standards can be simplified and accelerated as well. Finally, the methodology can bring economic benefits by acceleration of CMS development and publication process.
