An Introduction to Metadata for Researchers

An Introduction to Metadata for Researchers Online

Please note this is an online session. 

Metadata is data about data, and it is a key enabler of FAIR and Open Data. For data to be FAIR the associated metadata must be unambiguous and well described to facilitate the discovery, interoperability and reuse of data. Metadata can be human and machine readable and come in a variety of types depending on the object they are identifying or describing.  Metadata can take the form of ontologies, controlled vocabularies and schema but can also include things like file formats, persistent identifiers, licensing and documentation.

During this session we will hear about the value of metadata to a FAIR data ecosystem, different types of metadata and some examples of metadata standards.
