Tracking the provenance of information and knowledge with sources, concepts, ideas and the contributions of creators, inventors, and scholars remains essential to the reproducibility of scientific results, the reliability of engineering methods, the integrity of clinical trials, and the fair allocation of research and development resources. Since the first version, the PORTAL-DOORS Project (PDP) has provided schemas for the Nexus-PORTAL-DOORS-Scribe (NPDS) cyberinfrastructure which have always supported inclusion of provenance data as part of the metadata describing the entity corresponding to an NPDS record. However, PDP has not yet provided alternative templated formats for the provenance infosubset (aka, provenance facet) of the entire infoset that documents the entity for the identified NPDS record. Therefore, this report introduces a template for the provenance facet suitable for a generic entity type, along with alternatives appropriate for various specific entity types, including a template for authored publications that enables descriptions of contributor roles compatible with the CRediT taxonomy. By extending the PDP-DREAM ontology and creating a provenance subontology for the NPDS cyberinfrastructure with semantic classes and properties for these contributor roles, semantic search in NPDS repositories can be facilitated to support more effective discovery of resources with consideration of entities as same, similar, related, or different.
