A legal document describing the structure of the RDA Foundation under british law.
Based on 21 data models presented by experts coming from different disciplines and 120 interviews and interactions with different scientists and scientific departments, the DFT group has produced 5 inter-related reports and defined a number of simple definitions for digital data in a registered domain based on an agreed conceptualization.
A document describing RDA policy for publishing documents.
the outcomes of the DTR WG can be summarized as: • Confirmation that detailed and precise data typing is a key consideration in data sharing and reuse and that a federated registry system for such types is highly desirable and needs to accommodate each community’s own requirements • Deployment of a prototype registry implementing one potential data model, against which various use cases can be tested • Involvement of multiple ongoing scientific data management efforts,...

The goals of the DFT Working Group were: Moving the discussion in the data community towards an agreed, upon suite of terms relevant to RDA groups with a focus on basic core model of related terms along with some basic principles that will harmonize the data organization solutions. Fostering an effective RDA community culture by converging on essential terminology arising from agreed upon reference models. Based on a variety of data models and...
This document describes the roles, responsibilities and processes of the RDA Technical Advisory Board (TAB).
The working group on Persistent Identifier Information Types of the Research Data Alliance concerned itself with the essential types of information associated with persistent identifiers. The working group developed a conceptual model for structuring typed information, an application programming interface for access to typed information and a demonstrator implementing the interface. The final deliverable consists of a summarizing report, the interface specification and a set of exemplary types.
Computer actionable policies are used to enforce management, automate administrative tasks, validate assessment criteria, and automate scientific analyses. The benefits of using policies include minimization of the amount of labor needed to manage a collection, the ability to publish to the users the rules that are being used, and the ability to automate process management. Currently all sites and scientific communities use their own set of policies, if any. A generic set of policies that...
