We offer publishers the opportunity to link their social science and economic publications directly with the underlying research data.
Extensive metadata is available on research data registered with da|ra representing an excellent basis for indexing the collection. The metadata are created by our publication agents in accordance with our metadata schema (version 3.1), currently based on the DDI 2 (Data Documentation Initiative) standard, compliant with the DataCite metadata schema and Dublin Core.
More about the da|ra metadata schema can be found under technical information.
da|ra offers access to the metadata of the registered research data using the Open Archives Initiative Protocol for Metadata Harvesting (OAI-PMH). The da|ra OAI-PMH Data Provider is able to disseminate records in the following formats: DDI-Lifecycle 3.1 und OAI DC. Please consult the specification for implementation details. http://www.da-ra.de/oaip/
