  • Group Description

    The scope of the WG covers data sources from research and scholarly communication. Within this domain obstacles for wider application of brokering techniques are:

    • Multiple service protocols for data discovery, access, and application or processing;
    • Multiple content standards for data and metadata, augmented by Community profiles and non-standard implementations;
    • Multiple vocabularies and ontologies.
    • Multiple adaptation and mediation modules that are not guaranteed to be compatible.

    Research projects and research data infrastructure initiatives often solve problems associated with this diversity as a matter of course, but the knowledge gained and components developed during such a process are not visible and useful to others. Furthermore, project life cycle limitations lead to lack of sustainability, loss of expertise, code, and infrastructure.
