Life-Cycle & Comparative Study Types: Metadata Needs of the Future CESSDA RI

Presenter 1
Uwe Jensen
GESIS - Leibniz-Institut for the Social Science

Particular attention is given to researcher's expectations and demands on metadata from specific study types and to discuss options and barriers in providing substantive context information. Both appear relevant to find available and relevant data as a base for use them in comparative research. On the background of a study life-cycle perspective within the CESSDA research infrastructure (RI) the presentation will focus related metadata needs for different complex study types. Uses cases e.g. on EB trends; ISSP, ESS, BHPS will focus the metadata specifics of these study types. Along with best practice in documenting respective studies and their data the use of the new DDI3 standard is of specific interest for a developing research infrastructure along the study life-cycle from survey design to the publishing, dissemination and reuse of the data.
