About the Metadata category

This category is for any topics that discuss metadata around the datasets on the Gateway or metadata initiatives in general e.g diversity in data

One of our main aims of the Gateway is to ensure datasets and related resources are discoverable and accessible for researchers and innovators. A key part of this is the dataset metadata, which is the information available about a dataset. This information can help users understand whether a dataset will be of use to them without them having to see the data itself.

To help users easily see the quality of a dataset’s metadata, a metadata richness score is calculated for each dataset record on the Gateway and displayed on the Gateway as Platinum, Gold, Silver, Bronze or Not rated.
