DFIG FAIR DO: Project Share Aug. 27

19 Aug 2020

Dear all,
We would like to invite to our next meeting of “RDA Data Fabric IG: FAIR Digital Object”.
Project Share: 2020, August 27
How to use the Data Type Registry?
Presenter: Ulrich Schwardmann, Gesellschaft für Wissenschaftliche Datenverarbeitung mbH Göttingen (GWDG)
For FAIRness it is crucial to provide a metadata description of digital objects and in order to overcome the highly inefficient current way of data handling. This description should be understandable also by machines. Data Type Registries (DTRs) are used to define such metadata elements, called data types, and it turned out that for this also a formal framework is necessary that exactly describes dependencies between types. Additional aspects are that these descriptions can be made be available already at the reference level as PID information types and that there is a strong relation between types for digital objects and linked data. For machine actionability it is also crucial to describe in so-called profiles, which data types should be provided for DOs in a certain context. It turns out that such profiles, whereas semantically different, are syntactically very similar to derived data types.
