Scientific data as a resource type is very hard to characterize, not least because of the sheer variety of requirements placed on it by different areas of research. It is no surprise, then, that scientific metadata has traditionally been very discipline- and application-specific.

Mr. Ball will report on his research assessing the feasibility of a common metadata profile for scientific data discovery and ask, "Is it worth a try?"
