Slides from “Making the business case for investing in metadata"
Metadata provides context and provenance to raw data and methods and is essential to both discovery and validation of scientific research. Metadata is also necessary for finding, using, and properly managing scientific data while playing a crucial role in increasing the data quality of information systems.
Join us as we discuss the relevance of metadata within the research lifecycle - from research organisations to funders to publishers and researchers and why it is important to research. Josh Brown from MoreBrains Cooperative will provide insights and examples into how business cases for investment into research infrastructure can be built using metadata. Heather Kotula from Access Innovations, Inc will provide her take on how metadata contributes to knowledge management and how to measure its value. Michelle Urberg brings her expertise on metadata and its impact on research output. Julia McDonnell will round it out with her take on metadata and how publishers can influence and benefit the uptake and implementation of metadata within publishing systems.
