Research Data Management Support assists researchers and research groups in setting up the process of data description or metadata schemes.
The importance of standardised terminology
To make scientific data usable in multiple contexts of research, the interpretation of terms used should be unambiguous. That is to say researchers from various disciplines should use corresponding terminology for corresponding attributes. An important positive side effect of uniformity of terminology is that valuable research data becomes better findable online. And this is an important prerequisite for reuse of scientific data. In short: standardised terminology links data and maximises data impact, which is an important principle in open science.
