Tools for Describing Data
Metadata is descriptive information about data, including such things as how the data were collected, by whom and for what purpose. Such information is vital to enable re-use. For more information, see our Metadata Tutorial.
Meta-site indexing metadata standards. Enables searching for a standard by discipline or format and includes profiles, tools to implement the standards and use cases of data repositories currently implementing them. The author, the Digital Curation Centre, is U.K.-based.
Produced by expert members of the international DDI Working Group on Qualitative Data following two dedicated DDI meetings in 2011 and 2012, this paper represents an inclusive and relational model for complex data collections arising from qualitative and mixed methods research..
