Metadata Technology North America has announced that it is working with the Institute of Child Health (ICH) in the United Kingdom on the development of tools to prepare, publish, and maintain data management plans aligned with the DMP Online recommendations. These tools will leverage the Data Documentation Initiative (DDI) metadata specification and the ISO 27001 security standards to capture the necessary information.

This project is on target to be completed by the end of September 2012. This project will assess the viability of creating an extensible architecture for data management planning through the use of the DDI metadata specification and related tooling.

PRWeb brought this interesting news to our attention in their article, “Metadata Technology Collaborating With UK Institute for Child Health on Data Management Plan Tools and Services.”
