In Vitro Veritas data and metadata interoperability for Physical Samples

  • 1. Research Space, UK
  • 2. Datacite, DE


The Project was supported under the RDA Open Call for Interoperability Framework Contributions and implemented by Research Space (RSpace) and DataCite from December 2022 until July 2023. RSpace provided the digital research platform, which features an integrated electronic lab notebook and sample management system that are connected to an ecosystem of tools & services that researchers and data librarians commonly use. DataCite connects research outputs and resources with metadata—from samples and images to data and preprints - and facilitates the creation and management of persistent identifiers (PIDs), integrates services to improve research workflows, and facilitates the discovery and reuse of research outputs and resources. The key objective of the project was to provide guiding principles for implementing persistent identification and metadata features on research tools to boost interoperability of research data and to support sample management workflows. The project focused on building interoperability in research tools using IGSN DOIs provided by DataCite, and the RSpace digital research platform, as a case study. The project work was closely related to the work being done by the RDA Working with PIDs in Tools IG.
