Metadata Research and Development

Metadata research and development is a key part of the Dryad project. The Dryad metadata team has developed a metadata application profile based on the Dublin Core Metadata Initiative Abstract Model (DCAM) following the Dublin Core guidelines for application profiles. The Dryad application profile is being developed to conform Dublin Core Singapore Framework, a framework aligning with Semantic Web development and deployment.

Details regarding application profile development, with specific focus on Singapore Framework guidelines.

Dryad metadata R&D activities are informing larger efforts of the recently formed DCMI Science and Metadata Community.
