    Analysis and Synthesis of Data Management Terms


    Based on a variety of data models and use cases presented by experts coming from different disciplines and 120 interviews and interactions with different scientists and scientific departments, the DFT group has produced 8 inter-related reports and defined a number of simple definitions for digital data in a registered domain based on an agreed conceptualization. A summary of the core terms and the underlying model can be found in the first document called “Core Terms and Model”. This can also be used to cite the work.
