Metador provides a web-based structured submission interface for systematically sharing structured metadata alongside research data in direct collaborations.

Use Metador to (1) predefine the metadata requirements for a specific dataset, (2) validate entered metadata against a schema, (3) associate your research data files with structured (JSON) metadata.

Some of Metador’s key features are:

  • structured submission interface – every data file is accompanied by structured metadata

  • can be deployed on your local infrastructure (server)

  • supports JSON Schema – you can continue using the standard suiting your data best

  • authentication via ORCID

  • resumable uploads prevent data loss

  • checksums guarantee file integrity
