Portage Webinar – RDM and Metadata for Discovery: What’s in it for Researchers?

In the past five years, researchers have seen a growing number of research data management (RDM) policies being implemented by funders, publishers, and institutions. One key element in meeting these requirements, particularly in terms of data discovery, is using metadata, which helps make research data findable, accessible, interoperable and reusable (the FAIR principles). This session will reveal the secret life of your dataset metadata: the ways in which, for many years to come, it will work non-stop to foster the visibility, reach, and impact of your work. Join us to see how metadata will help your dataset travel through the global research infrastructure, and how data repositories and discovery services can use this (meta)data to help launch your dataset into the world.
