First draft of international commons attribute & KPI model

27 Apr 2023

Dear RDA IG and WG chairs, members of the GORC-IG, and members of the GORC-WG,


The Global Open Research Commons International Model Working Group (GORC-WG) has been working to create a model describing commons attributes so that commons developers can compare features across research clouds and commons. After extensive review, evaluation, and face-to-face discussion during the recent RDA 20th Plenary, we are ready to present our first draft.


Version 0.5 of our international model describing commons attributes and KPIs is open for your review and we invite you to add comments and feedback. This is not a community request for comment, however we have been requested to share the work we have accomplished so far:


Our work on the commons attribute model is ongoing. If you are interested in helping us create our final outputs, we strongly encourage you to join the GORC-WG and also consider joining one or more task groups.
