Jisc Research Data Registry and Discovery Service

Introduction

The DCC has recently completed a six-month pilot to test a possible approach to a UK-wide registry or catalogue of research data held in UK HEIs and established subject-focused data centres, working towards aims set out in the 2010 findings of the RLUK / RUGIT / Jisc UKRDS initiative.

Metadata mapping for the pilot UK Research Data Registry

Having set up the software that will power our pilot UK Research Data Registry, we are now writing crosswalks that will let us import metadata records from various UK data centres and institutional data repositories. We have mapped from five different metadata schemes to the registry's own internal scheme, RIF-CS. In February 2014 we will turn these mappings into crosswalks and begin testing them out.
