Within the framework of the annual meeting of the German Soil Science Society (DBG) organized the BonaRes data centre the 2. BonaRes data workshop in Göttingen, on the 7th of Septermber 2017. The focus of this workshop was on the comfortable upload of research data to the BonaRes data Centre and the comprehensive description with metadata following the BonaRes metadata schema. Both aspects are prerequisite for the provision of the BonaRes data DOI.
15 participants from 5 module A-projects joined the workshop starting with a short overview on the mode of operation of the BonaRes data centre with a focus on the data portal (upload of research data and description with metadata) and legal aspects (embargo time and licenses). During the second part of the workshop, participants were able to familiarize themselves with the functionalities of the metadata editor. They describe their own research data with metadata meeting the requirements of the BonaRes metadata schema with subsequent validation and transfer to the metadata database.
