DAMA DMBOK - DAMA International
"A team of DAMA members has developed a new book titled "The DAMA Guide to the Data Management Body of Knowledge" (DAMA-DMBOK Guide), under the guidance of a new DAMA-DMBOK Editorial Board. This publication is available from April 5th, 2009.

The “body of knowledge” about data management is quite large and constantly growing. the DAMA-DMBOK Guide provides a “definitive introduction” to data management. It defines a standard industry view of data management functions, terminology and best practices, without detailing specific methods and techniques. The DAMA-DMBOK is not a complete authority on any specific topic, but will point readers to widely recognized publications, articles and websites for further reading."

A Metadata Best Practice for a Scientific Data Repository - Journal of Library Metadata
Digital data repositories ought to support immediate operational needs and long-term project goals. This paper presents the Dryad repository's metadata best practice balancing of these two needs. The paper reviews background work exploring the meaning of science, characterizing data, and highlighting data curation metadata challenges. The Dryad repository is introduced, and the initiative's metadata best practice and underlying rationales are described. Dryad's metadata approach includes two prongs: one addressing the long-term goal to align with the Semantic Web via a metadata application profile; and another addressing the immediate need to make content available in DSpace via an extensible markup language (XML) schema. The conclusion summarizes limitations and advantages of the two prongs underlying Dryad's metadata effort.
