BioSharing Registry: connecting data policies, standards & databases in life sciences WG @ RDA 9th Plenary Meeting
BioSharing Registry: connecting data policies, standards & databases in life sciences WG is coming to the end of its 18 month life cycle at the 9th Plenary Meeting in Barcelona.
The group is currently preparing a recommendation package for consideration by the RDA Council and community. It has worked on two main outputs - principles for linking information on databases, content standards and journal and funder policies in the life, biomedical and environmental sciences; and a manually curated prototype registry, which would enable access and cross-searching of this information.
This registry (https://www.biosharing.org) contains over 1500 manually curated and linked entries, split into over 800 database entries, over 650 metadata standards records, and over 80 journal and funder data policy records.
The group has a growing list of adopters. Please visit the group working area to find out more about our outputs and how to become an adopter.
