QDR Metadata Application Profile

This metadata schema is intended principally for developers and librarians. Researchers should consult the guidance on depositing data that QDR provides here.

QDR’s Metadata Application Profile defines the type of metadata QDR collects and their structure. It closely maps to Data Documentation Initiative (DDI) 2.5 (“Codebook”) as well as the Datacite Metadata Kernel. The Profile also maintains compatibility with the metadata used by Dataverse more broadly, ensuring that QDR’s holdings will be compatible with other Dataverse implementations. Fields are listed in order of appearance in the QDR catalog.
