BioCADDIE (Biomedical and healthCAre Data Discovery and Indexing Ecosystem- Supplement 3)

a PSC Research Project

Investigators:   George C. Alter, Jared Alan Lyle

Aim 1: Expand activities related to schema.org
During the NCE we will reinforce the convergence between DATS and the schema.org Dataset metadata profile by helping repositories to provide both bioCADDIE DATS and schema.org JSON messaging. ICPSR will assist in the development of the `push? approach in which data repositories expose their metadata in JSON DATS for harvesting by DataMed and other potential indexers. ICPSR will revise its existing JSON DATS service to meet changes in the standard and to assist the bioCADDIE Core Development Team as they create a repository crawler to ingest JSON DATS. ICPSR staff will also participate in outreach and the development of documentation to help other repositories develop their own DATS services.

Aim 2: Demonstrate the value of in-depth indexing of data by developing generalizable processes and testing them on a use case
ICPSR will participate in the development of use cases and prototypes of in-depth indexing. Data in the ICPSR catalog will be described in DATS at the dimension/variable for ingest in the DataMed index. ICPSR staff will also participate in developing strategies for integrating Common Data Elements (CDEs) into DataMed?s indexing and data discovery systems.

Funding Period: 09/29/2014 to 08/31/2018
