I assume you're using the EPrints Control Format (summary.xml)?

If so, look at perl_lib/EPrints/Script.pm to see the various functions you
can call on your object. For the metadata available for a document (as
opposed to an eprint) I would take a look at
archives/<archivename>/cfg/citations/document/*.xml. That should show that
you can just use the field names from the 'document' database table like

<epc:print expr="fieldname"/>

Does that help at all?
