Data Documentation Initiative (DDI)

The Data Documentation Initiative (DDI) is an open metadata standard for describing data and specifying data collection activities. DDI's principle goal is making research metadata machine-actionable. The specification can document and manage different stages of data lifecycles, such as conceptualization, collection, processing, analysis, distribution, discovery, repurposing, and archiving.

NADDI is about sharing stories and discoveries. Share your experiences.
