HMC FAIR Friday with Tom Morrell



Speaker: Tom Morrell (Research Data Specialist, Caltech Library)

Title: Automating FAIR metadata for software and datasets using open APIs

Date: Friday, 08 July 2022, 3 p.m. CEST

A key challenge for FAIR software and datasets is creating metadata and keeping it updated. Open APIs provide an efficient way of automating metadata, and I’ll share some specific examples for both research software and datasets. We’ll look at automation I’ve created for CaltechDATA, the institutional data and software repository for Caltech. I’ll discuss current and future plans for automation in InvenioRDM, the open-source repository platform based on Zenodo and designed for institutions. 

To stimulate and support interdisciplinary exchange, the Helmholtz Metadata Collaboration (HMC) in close cooperation with the Helmholtz Information & Data Science Academy (HIDA) is organizing the HMC FAIR Friday lecture series. It is aimed at experienced actors in research data management as well as scientists from all research fields of the Helmholtz Association and beyond.

HMC FAIR Friday features talks by high-ranking national and international speakers to bring all participants (even) closer to the world of FAIR data, deepen individual aspects and stimulate discussions.
