During the development of the data submission functionality of the RDB solution, we have come up with a question regarding what metadata are required when submitting an excel sheet. For example, we have considered adding the author of the document, a description field and some time related fields e.g. submission time. But we are not sure about what other metadata fields may be needed. e.g. organization - institution name, sector, something else?
So, due to the fact that we are not sure about what is going to be needed, we would like to ask you to provide us with a list of fields that maybe required. Furthermore, we would like to know if these are mandatory or optional fields.

We selected from the iMarine wiki http://wiki.i-marine.eu/index.php/Metadata_standards

The Dublin Core vocabulary is a potential candidate for Business metadata.

  1. Owner* = dcterms:RightsHolder
  2. Context = dcterms:Collection and/or dcterms:Dataset Authorship (Context or Subject area gives the scope in which a content is positioned. As a data collection, it indicates to which aggregation of resources the content is belonging to.)
  3. Author* = dc:Creator = upload user
  4. Title* = dc:Title = DSD-Name ""-"" Country ""-""YYYYMMDD
  5. Publisher = dc:Publisher
  6. Creation date = dcterms: Created
  7. Last update date* = dc:Date
  8. Expiry date = dcterms:Valid
  9. Contact
  10. Copyright license = dc:Rights and/or dcterms:AccessRights and/or dcterms:RightsStatement and/or dcterms:License etc. (Rights management, Creative Commons License type or other licenses)
  11. Spatial Scale = dcterms:Spatial (Spatial characteristics of the resource. Geographic level at which the content is applied)
  12. Language = dc:Language
  13. Identifier = dc:Identifier (e.g. URL of the resource)

"*" Mandatory metadata

We suggest to add the following :

  1. Type of datasets (defined by the DSD used)
  2. Provenance URL (if any)
  3. Upload date
  4. Approved date (=Sucessfully submitted)
  5. Validity start
  6. Access level (Public or VRE)
  7. Upload policy (Append, Update, ReplaceAll) => Append only new records and keep previous record, update existing, or replace all
