thanks phil! alas, I thought so — would be great to get your thoughts, or hear if anyone’s tried something similar
We’ve been thinking about ways to build up an index of extended metadata (based on the social science data sharing guidelines, plus some extra stuff like doing some entity reconciliation on schemas) for innovation datasets that are either already located in some repository (dataverse/zenodo/bigquery/someone’s website) or that haven’t been posted yet.
In the former case we’d use various APIs to populate most of the metadata, so as a minimum you just need to post the URL, but could also add in some more info. For the latter case, we want to include a step that then posts the files straight to dataverse (or zenodo if they’re very large), along with all the metadata.
thanks for your help :)
