SPARC Data Standards Working Group

This document provides a high level overview of the SPARC Minimal Information Standard (MIS) and its use to create the SPARC Knowledge Graph. The MIS is a semantic metadata model that specifies key metadata attributes and their relationships for SPARC datasets. This document provides the history, rationale, structure and content, and provides links to files and additional documentation.  It is intended primarily as an internal document for developers or knowledge engineers who are part of the DRC or who will be working with the SPARC Knowledge Graph.  Because some files contain both published and unpublished data, not all links are publicly available.
