Harvestable Metadata Service

This Working Group (WG) was created to support Members of the World Data System who do not yet have a harvestable metadata catalogue. Having a harvestable metadata catalogue is a minimum requirement for being a WDS Member, is consistent with the FAIR principle that metadata are retrievable using a standardized communication protocol and is part of the CoreTrustSeal Requirement to facilitate machine harvesting of metadata. It is also important to WDS partners and the wider scientific community to make WDS data assets visible and findable in aggregator platforms such as OpenAire, PANGAEA, DataCite, and Google Dataset Search.
