The product of this WG will be a searchable registry of reliable and linked information about databases, content standards (as defined in section 2.2) and journal and funder policies in the life sciences on which a variety of stakeholders can base their decisions. Specifically, journals, researchers and funders will be able to recommend or select mature and community endorsed databases and standards, and developers and curators of repositories and content standards will be aware of the requirements they need to meet to ensure their products are discoverable and well described so that they can be used by researchers or recommended by journals and funders.
To ensure a manageable project size and delivery within the 18-month timeframe, the WG will focus on the life sciences and leverage the existing BioSharing1 effort; the principles and the registry, however, will be developed in a way that is extendable to other areas of science. This use cases-driven WG is led and constituted by prospective adopters as well as technical implementers, many of whom are also leading and/or actively involved in other relevant RDA IGs and WGs, whose activities this WG complements and with which this WG will work closely.
