General Information
Capturing high level information about scientific studies and the data that they produce, the CSMD is developed to support data collected within a facility’s scientific workflow. However the model is also designed to be generic across scientific disciplines and has application beyond facilities science, particularly in the “structural sciences” (such as chemistry, material science, earth science, and biochemistry) which are concerned with analysing the structure of substances, and perform systematic experimental analyses on samples of those materials.
