General Information
This record was deprecated on March 11, 2021 for the following reason(s): This resource is no longer active. In the September 2020, Scientific Data transitioned to a JSON-LD format for these metadata files. All of the ISA-Tab format metadata files accompanying Data Descriptors published in Scientific Data from journal launch in May 2014 to September 2019 inclusive are now available in the figshare link available as this record's homepage.

ISA-explorer stores information in the ISA-Tab metadata format to facilitate dataset discovery for the journal Scientific Data. Published Scientific Data ISA-Tab files can be easily read and explored via this repository. The ISA model records the data’s provenance, how it was generated and where it is located – all prerequisites of publication with Scientific Data. The ISA-Tab metadata file is used to generate the Structured Summary table that appears after the abstract in every Data Descriptor article.
