Wheat Data Interoperability Recommendations

By Esther DZALE YEUMO

These recommendations have been prepared by members of the Wheat Data Interoperability Working Group (WG). The group is coordinated by members of the Wheat Initiative, a global initiative that aims to reinforce synergies between bread and durum wheat national and international research programmes to increase food security, nutritional value and safety while taking into account societal demands for sustainable and resilient agricultural production systems.

An earlier version of the endorsed guidelines is also available.

Metadata Standards Directory Working Group Recommendations

By Rebecca Koskela

The Metadata Standards Directory Working Group set out to develop a directory that would enable researchers, and those who support them, to discover metadata standards that would be appropriate for documenting their research data, regardless of their academic discipline. It happened that a directory with similar aims had recently been developed independently by the UK Digital Curation Centre (DCC), so the group collaborated with the DCC on developing the directory further to achieve additional goals regarding coverage, ease of maintenance, and sustainability.

Repository Audit and Certification DSA–WDS Partnership WG Recommendations

By Rorie Edmunds

The Catalogue of Common Procedures was developed by the DSA–WDS Partnership Working Group on Repository Audit and Certification, a Working Group (WG) of the Research Data Alliance (RDA) . The goal of the effort was to create a set of harmonized Common Procedures for certification of repositories at the basic level, drawing from the procedures already put in place by the Data Seal of Approval (DSA) and the ICSU World Data System (ICSU­-WDS). These procedures are intended to support the implementation of the Catalogue of Common Requirements developed by the WG to harmonize the certification criteria previously established by the DSA and ICSU-­WDS.

Basic Vocabulary of Foundational Terminology Query Tool - Data Foundation and Terminology (DFT) WG Recommendations

By Peter Wittenburg

Based on 21 data models presented by experts coming from different disciplines and 120 interviews and interactions with different scientists and scientific departments, the DFT group has produced 5 inter-related reports and defined a number of simple definitions for digital data in a registered domain based on an agreed conceptualization.
