Brief introduction describing the activities and scope of the group: 

This working group aims at providing a framework to complement, build on and extend efforts such as bioschema.org, science-on-schema.org as well as supporting communities in applying and extending the core schema.org vocabulary for describing research datasets and related resources. 

The planned outputs include: 

  • Crosswalks collection: a generic ‘conceptual data model’ with essential types and properties for research data discovery over the web. The model will be built on bioschemas.org, science-on-schema.org, schema.org, DCAT, DDI-DISCO and SSN schemas from some representative research domains, and data discovery use cases. A research domain can map their schema to the conceptual model when they publish data to the web or exchange metadata between data portals/repositories.

  • Guidelines for publishing metadata landing pages with structured data markup and how to customise the research schemas for targeted domains with examples.

  • Toolings for making the implementation easier if resources are available. This could include collecting and cataloguing tools that generate, validate and parse schema.org & DCAT markup, etc.

Short Group Status: 

The group submitted the final report on 15 June 2021, the group became maintenance group since then
