Brief introduction describing the activities and scope of the group(s)

The Metadata Interest Group serves as an umbrella group for all aspects of metadata for research data. In particular, it coordinates the efforts of the Working Groups concerned with metadata to provide a coherent approach to metadata. The RDA-NISO Interest Group on the Privacy Implications of Research Data Sets is exploring ways in which the creation, storage, sharing, and combination of, data sets might put at risk the privacy of human-subjects and ways that the research community can mitigate those risks. The interest group is focused on a variety of legal, policy and systematic ways in which privacy can be protected. The RDA/CODATA Legal Interoperability Interest Group examines, provides a better understanding, and some solutions for the intellectual property concerns that confront scientists in sharing, accessing, using, reusing, and particularly in combining or integrating data in their research activities.
