DDI and Institutional Repositories briefing paper

DDI, the Data Documentation Initiative, is the "codebook standard" for quantitative social datasets. This new briefing paper from the DataShare project explains the DDI as a form of metadata, how version 3 embraces a life-cycle approach to data management, and how the DDI could be exploited by OAI-compliant data repositories.

DDI and Institutional Repositories, by Luis Martinez, released 1 February, 2008.
