    An INBO perspective

  2. We publish data to GBIF & Zenodo

  4. Darwin Core mapping
    •  Almost always too
    complex for IPT
    interface:
    – SQL view
    – R script
    •  Documented
    •  Versioned

  5. Darwin Core mapping review
    •  Review by colleague:
    – Valid DwC-A?
    – Clear to outside user?
    – As agreed?
    •  Documented/tested
    as whip specifications
    Whip specifications github.com/inbo/whip

  6. Support iterative review
    •  Generate DwC-A
    without publishing
    •  Plug-in validation

  7. Rethink metadata
    •  12 metadata tabs in
    the IPT
    •  All seem to have
    equal importance

  8. Focus on basic metadata
    •  Focus on required
    metadata
    •  Collapse optional
    metadata

  9. Basic metadata
    •  DOI
    •  Publisher
    •  Language
    •  Resource type
    •  License
    •  Title
    •  Creators (authors)
    •  Description (abstract)
    •  Subjects (keywords)
    •  Publication date
    DataCite Metadata Schema schema.datacite.org/meta/kernel-4.3/

  10. Basic metadata
    Is what appears on other platforms

  11. Additional metadata
    •  Indicate as optional
    •  Coverage: derive
    from data
    •  Methodology: mostly
    as data paper

    View full-size slide

  12. Support collaboration/review
    •  Review by
    collaborators:
    – Author list
    – Description
    – Methodology
    •  IPT better at this
    than Zenodo

  13. Improve usability
    •  Authors
    – Name, affiliation,
    ORCID
    – Allow reordering
    – Author registry
    •  Metadata templates
    •  Dataset status

    View full-size slide

  14. Deposit in research repository
    •  IPTs should not be
    long-term repositories
    •  Use:
    – Zenodo
    – DataONE member
    – Institutional

    View full-size slide

  15. Versioning
    •  Updated data =
    new version
    •  Updated metadata !=
    new version
    •  Each version has DOI
    •  One version-less DOI

    View full-size slide

  16. Registration
    •  Keep separate from
    publication
    •  Single registry
    •  Allow registration
    with multiple
    communities
    – GBIF, OBIS, project, …
