EUDAT Community Extensions#


EUDAT fosters the use community extensions for EUDAT metadata schemas. Community extensions provide scientific communities a way to define its own metadata schema fields on top of the default metadata schema defined by EUDAT Extended metadata schema. This way a community is able to enforce any researcher that publishes data under that community to include additional, community specific information about the data.


You can see EUDAT B2SHARE service documentation for more information and technical details on how community metadata extensions are used in EUDAT B2SHARE service. Support for community extensions in EUDAT B2INST service is being implemented.
