ready Dublin Core Metadata Element Set

Abbreviation: DC


General Information
The Dublin Metadata Element Set, which is often called Dublin Core (DC), is a standardized metadata scheme for description of any kind of resource such as documents in electronic and non-electronic form, digital materials (such as video, sound, images, etc) and composite media like web pages. is a small set of vocabulary terms that can be used to describe several kinds of resources. Dublin Core Metadata may be used for multiple purposes, from simple resource description, to combining metadata vocabularies of different metadata standards, to providing interoperability for metadata vocabularies in the Linked Data cloud and Semantic Web implementations.

figshare
figshare is a data publishing platform that is free for all researchers. Some of figshare’s core beliefs are: academic research outputs should be as open as possible, as closed as necessary; academic research outputs should never be behind a paywall; academic research outputs should be human and machine readable/query-able; academic infrastructure should be interchangeable; academic researchers should never have to put the same information into multiple systems at the same institution; identifiers for everything; and the impact of research is independent of where it is published and what type of output it is. figshare supports embargoing and managed access, and will embargo data while undergoing peer review. Metadata in figshare is licenced under is CC0. All files and metadata can be accessed from docs.figshare.com. figshare has also partnered with DuraSpace and Chronopolis to offer further assurances that public data will be archived under the stewardship of Chronopolis. In the highly unlikely event of multiple AWS S3 failures, figshare can restore public user content from Chronopolis. figshare is supported through Institutional, Funder, and Governmental service subscriptions.
