bioCaddie: Biomedical Healthcare Data Discovery Index Ecosystem
The bioCaddie team is playing a leading and pivotal role in the development and establishment of both policy and guidance for metadata, online datasets, and repository data stored elsewhere by developing a Data Discovery Index (DDI) prototype. The DDI will play an important role in promoting data interaction through the adoption of content standards and alignment of common data elements and high-level schema. A DDI could provide the means to test the ultility of these standards. It could serve as an incubator to spur the types of quality metrics that currently are being developed around article metrics, including article analysis and altmetrics.
