Metadata for Large-Scale Research Instruments
The work outlines diverse effort of a few initiatives for metadata and attribution mechanisms that can be used for large-scale instruments hosted by shared research facilities. Specifically, the role of persistent identifiers and associated metadata is considered, in relation to cases where the use of references to large-scale instruments can support research impact studies and Open Science agenda. A few routes for the adoption of large-scale instruments metadata are outlined, with indication of their advantages and limitations.
