Framework for increased discoverability of Social Science Data Objects in the EOSC Portal Service Catalogue


This proposal aims to recommend a framework for harvesting and delivering for discovery rich metadata of social science data objects for the EOSC Portal Service Catalogue. The proposed framework would allow to enrich generic descriptors of data with relevant additional information depending on the type of the SSD object. This conditional model would allow for flexibility and comprehensiveness at the same time, as its main operating framework would be based on the most widely used generic metadata descriptors, at the same time, integrating additional elements from domain specific metadata descriptors.
