Data Description Registry Interoperability WG is working on a series of bi-lateral information exchange projects and an open, extensible, and flexible cross-platform research data discovery software solutions. Research Data Switchboard is a collaborative project by the members of the DDRI WG. This project leverages DataCite DOI, ORCID and other persistent identifiers, and uses simple but effective research graph technology to link datasets. This system currently links datasets across the following platforms: Dryad, INSPIREHEP (at CERN), ORCID, Figshare and link Australian research datasets through Research Data Australia - supported by ANDS.
This document describes the outcome of the Data Description Registry Interoperability (DDRI) working group and specification of the interoperability model implemented by the partners in this group. In addition, this document shows the testing of this model through an implementation called Research Data Switchboard, a collaborative project by the participants in this working group. The intended audience is the Research Data Alliance community.
