BioSharing Registry : Connecting Data Policies, Standards & Databases

BioSharing Registry: connecting data policies, standards & databases in life sciences Working Group (WG) is coming to the end of its 18 month life cycle at the 9th RDA Plenary Meeting in Barcelona (5-7 April, 2017)Join the WG meetings on 5 and 6 April, 2017


This WG is currently preparing a recommendation package for consideration by the RDA Council and community. It has worked on two main outputs:

  • principles for linking information on databases, content standards and journal and funder policies in the life, biomedical and environmental sciences; and
  • a manually curated prototype registry, which would enable access and cross-searching of this information.

This REGISTRY contains over 1500 manually curated and linked entries, split into over 800 database entries, over 650 metadata standards records, and over 80 journal and funder data policy records.

The WG has a growing list of adopters. Please visit the group working area to find out more about WG outputs and how to become an adopter
