The third webinar in the 2022 CODATA-DDI Alliance webinar series will take
place on Thu 16 June 2022 on the topic, “Metadata Uplift – PDF/Excel to
Structured DDI Documentation”.

Registration is now open at:
(If you already registered for this event at its previous scheduled date,
thank you - you do not need to register again.)

Many organizations document their data using formats such as PDF and Excel.
While useful to readers, the metadata which makes up the core
‘documentation’ is not fully machine-actionable. This webinar explores the
ways in which organizations can take existing data documentation in typical
formats and produce structured, machine-actionable XML metadata according
to the DDI Codebook (DDI-C) and DDI Lifecycle (DDI-L) standards. The goal
of the workshop is to introduce some common approaches based on existing
tools and the real-world experience of DDI users who have faced and met
this challenge.  There will be time for questions and answers with our
panel of expert speakers, including Arofan Gregory, consultant; Hayley
Mills, CLOSER (https://www.closer.ac.uk/); and Adrian Dusa, University of
Bucharest. The session will be introduced by Laura Molloy, CODATA.

While most common in the social, behavioral, and economic (SBE) sciences,
the DDI standards are also used in public health, official statistics, and
in other domains where populations are being observed. The forthcoming DDI
Cross-Domain Integration (DDI-CDI) will also be briefly introduced, as a
means of exposing SBE data to other domains for reuse, building on the
foundations of structured metadata in DDI-C and DDI-L.
