Suggested schema change
Add new relatedInfo types: "re-use information" and "data quality information".

Problem this suggestion addresses
The relatedInfo element currently has only the following minimal types:
• publication: any formally published document, whether available in digital or online format or not
• website: any publicly accessible location containing information related to the collection, activity, party or service.
To support re-use, the following additional types are suggested:
• re-use information: information that supports reuse of data, such as
    o data dictionaries, data definitions, interpretations of column and row labels and table names, explanation of data values
    o data models or descriptions of how the data is structured and organised
    o scientific models
    o scientific workflows
    o software or software configuration
    o instrument calibration or settings
    o sample descriptions
    o experimental parameters
    o methodology
    o data analysis techniques
    o data derivation or transformation rules
• data quality information: data quality statements or summaries of data quality issues affecting the data

RIF-CS schema components affected
relatedInfo element and child elements identifier, title and notes

Impact on content providers
Optional types, only affect those who choose to use them

Pros
These additional types will help users of Research Data Australia see what kind of information is available.
Inclusion of these types has an educational dimension by providing examples of the kind of information that supports reuse.

Cons
None identified

Technical options
The vocabulary terms “re-use information” and “data quality information” will need to be added to the ORCA registry “tbl_terms” database table.
The vocabs.xml file will need to be amended to add the vocab relatedInfo types “re-use information” and “data quality information” definitions.
The vocabularies.html will need to be regenerated to reflect the addition of the relatedInfo types “re-use information” and “data quality information”.
Changes will be required to the content providers guide.

Based on the RIF-CS Advisory Board meeting last July 26, this request has been agreed and endorsed. No further action or discussion required.
