What is the ANDS data connections strategy?
ANDS is collaborating with other national agencies to establish an underpinning informatics infrastructure that improves the potential coherence and integration of research grants, projects, data and publications.
This national infrastructure supports standard definitions, reference values, identifiers for these common entities and contributors' use of these standard terms or identifiers when describing research data collections. These connections between data collections can be discovered through the ANDS Research Data Australia (RDA) service which forms the public interface to information held in the ANDS Registry.
The data connections strategy builds on this approach by incorporating common referencing methods for researchers, research groups, research activities, places, research datasets, research fields, and scholarly or scientific terminology.
