This tutorial explains the fundamentals of the DARIAH-DE Publikator, a tool which allows you to prepare, manage, and finally import your collections into the DARIAH-DE Repository using your favourite internet browser. The Repository provides the ability to store research data and enrich them with metadata. Through the use of persistent identifiers, a permanent machine-readable reference is ensured and findable via a generic search. The tutorial contains guides for users as well as technical documentation.
Metadata is simply 'data about data' that allows for organising information in a structured way.
- Thesauri, taxonomies and other forms of controlled vocabularies represent a conceptual backbone of the research, playing an ever-increasing role in various aspects of the data management process. These resources are indispensable to determine common understanding allowing to systematically categorize and enrich research data in a consistent manner, as well as foster the data interoperability and integration among projects and web applications.
