Metadata Recommendations

Recommendations Wiki

Proceed to the Wiki

In order to establish a harmonized data space, common rules how to organize metadata are essential. In this Wiki we develop community recommendations for the Helmholtz association. These recommendations target specific topics, like Persistent Identifiers (PIDs), Interfaces, semantic ressources, etc., but are also tailored towards stakeholder groups, like data repository maintainers, technicians, researchers or center management.

Whether you are a repository maintainer, developer, researcher, or othrwise related to contributing to research data - please take a look at our recommendations and consider adopting them according to your role.

If you are interested working with us on these recommendations, contact us at
