You are a researcher and you are working with data? Great!
This short, anonymous poll- targeted at researchers- aims to characterise the range of research data management tools that are used across domains and regions. It is being conducted by Research Data Alliance (RDA) Long Tail of Research Data Interest Group.
The results will be reported at the next RDA meeting in Paris in September 2015 and also made available through the Long Tail Interest Group webpage.
The poll will be open from June 15 to July 31, 2015 and is available on https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/TVQ7RY6.
It is only one-page long and will take less that 5 minutes to complete.

All people dealing with research data management quickly learn that good metadata is key for research data access and re-use.
Now Elizabeth Bedford from DCC, the Digital Curation Centre in UK, collected a lot of information about disciplinary metadata standards, including profiles, tools to implement the standards and use cases of data repositories currently implementing them.
The ressource can be searches by discipline (biology, earth science, physical science, social sciences and humanities and general research data) or by resource type (metadata standards, profiles and extensions, use cases, tools).
Everyone dealing with RDM should have a look at that page – I think it is a very good ressource and provides a valueable overview of disciplinary metadata standards.
