  • Abstract

    The C2Metadata (“Continuous Capture of Metadata”) Project automates one of the most burdensome aspects of documenting the provenance of research data: describing data transformations performed by statistical software. Researchers in many fields use statistical software (SPSS, Stata, SAS, R, Python) for data transformation and data management as well as analysis. Scripts used with statistical software are translated into an independent Structured Data Transformation Language (SDTL), which serves as an intermediate language for describing data transformations. SDTL can be used to add variable-level provenance to data catalogs and codebooks and to create “variable lineages” for auditing software operations. This repository provides examples of scripts and metadata for use in testing C2Metadata tools.
