Abstract: Metadata puts research data in their context, making data intelligible and apt to sustain technology evolution and to be reused, in compliance with the FAIR principles. The workflow proposed in this work includes metadata generation in the context of research projects, created with the Dendro platform, and metadata originated in the interaction of people with the deposited data, created with the B2NOTE service from EUDAT. In our experiments, datasets are prepared with Dendro, taking into consideration general-purpose descriptors and domain-specific ones, then transparently deposited in B2SHARE. After publication, B2NOTE provides an environment where authors, other researchers, and any interested party can enrich the description with less formal comments, tags or keywords. This work contributes with (a) a set of use cases in several domains, (b) details on the descriptors used by authors in each case, and (c) reflections on the use of data after publication, using the B2NOTE contributions.

Keywords: research data management; metadata; semantic annotation; Dendro; B2SHARE; B2NOTE.
