Abstract

The metadata needed to support users working with data is very different according to whether they are citing, discovering or reusing it. Only about five elements are strictly necessary to form a complete citation, whereas a useful generic data discovery service can be built using about sixteen to twenty elements. The metadata needed for reuse varies enormously between disciplines, data types and user communities.
