On a crisp, clear January day in Santa Fe, New Mexico, Lucinda Marker and her husband, John Tull, stepped inside an Airstream trailer that StoryCorps converted into a mobile recording studio. Marker and Tull were there to interview each other for an audio memento, to reminisce and talk about significant moments in their shared lives, especially […]

The DataCite Metadata Working Group is pleased to announce the release of Version 3.0 of the Metadata Schema. Documentation for the new schema is available. The DataCite Metadata Store (MDS) will accept Metadata Version 3.0 immediately. The MDS will continue to accept submissions using the prior versions of the Schema for the foreseeable future.
Key new features include:
- Better support for depiction of dates by implementing the RKMS-ISO8601 standard for date ranges.
- New support for recording data collection location, with box and point coordinates, as well by using a free-text description.
- Provision of a mechanism to associate additional metadata so that discipline-specific descriptions can be added to DataCite’s more generic schema.
- And, finally, numerous improvements to the documentation, including:
- greater detail, explanatory material and definitions for controlled lists
- more and more varied XML examples on the Metadata Schema website
- and, indicators of which optional properties are most important for helping the metadata to be found, cited and linked to original research.
A full list of the changes can be found starting on page 4 of the documentation.
This new version includes responses to a large number of feature requests from you, the data citation and sharing community. Thank you to all of you who have provided us with suggestions, questions, and feedback. We look forward to more conversations about these topics and how better to support them with the Metadata Standard.
