A crosswalk of the DataCite schema to RDA metadata standard for DMPs

The following examples break each element/section down into how you can map it to the RDA metadata standard for DMPs. The full RDA JSON file (well just the relevant parts) can be found at the end for reference.

DataCite/RDA maDMP field mappings

Mapping each element/section of the DataCite schema to the equivalent RDA metadata standard for DMPs data.

Resource Type

Datacite:

<resourceType resourceTypeGeneral="OutputManagementPlan">Data Management Plan</resourceType>

RDA metadata standard:
No equivalent field; the entire record is wrapped in a field "dmp"

Identifier

Datacite:

<identifier identifierType="DOI">10.12345/ABC123</identifier>

RDA metadata standard:

"dmp_id": { "type":"doi", "identifier": "https://doi.org/10.0000/ABCD1234" },

Titles

DataCite:

<titles>
  <title xml:lang="en-US">Lorem ipsum</title>
</titles>

RDA metadata standard:

  • Note that the RDA standard allows for a single title entry. The language attribute can be derived from the language entry in the RDA standard.
"title": "Lorem ipsum",

Language

DataCite:

<language>en</language>

RDA metadata standard:

"language": "eng"

Publisher and Publication Year

DataCite

<publisher>My System</publisher>
<publicationYear>2021</publicationYear>

RDA metadata standard:
*Note: there is no equivalent for this in the RDA standard. Typically though the RDA created date’s year would match the year used in DataCite’s ‘publicationYear’ element. The DataCite Publisher would typically match the name of your system/repository.

"created": "2021-03-09T20:49:42Z"

Creators

DataCite:

<creators>
   <creator>
     <creatorName>Smith, John</creatorName>
     <nameIdentifier nameIdentifierScheme="ORCID" schemeURI="http://orcid.org/">
       https://orcid.org/0000-0000-0000-000X
     </nameIdentifier>
     <affiliation affiliationIdentifier="https://ror.org/xxxxx"
                  affiliationIdentifierScheme="ROR">Generic University</affiliation>
   </creator>
 </creators>

RDA metadata standard:

"contact":{
  "name": "Smith, John",
  "affiliation": {
    "name": "Generic University",
    "affiliation_id": { "type": "ror", "identifier": "https://ror.org/xxxxx" }
  },
  "contact_id": { "type": "orcid", "identifier": "https://orcid.org/0000-0000-0000-000X" }
},

Contributors

DataCite:

<contributors>
  <contributor contributorType="HostingInstitution">
    <contributorName>Repository X</contributorName>
    <nameIdentifier nameIdentifierScheme="ROR">https://ror.org/zzzzz</nameIdentifier>
  </contributor>
  <contributor contributorType="Producer">
    <contributorName>Example University</contributorName>
    <nameIdentifier nameIdentifierScheme="ROR">https://ror.org/yyyyy</nameIdentifier>
  </contributor>
  <contributor contributorType="ProjectLeader">
    <contributorName>Doe PhD, Jane</contributorName>
    <nameIdentifier nameIdentifierScheme="ORCID" schemeURI="http://orcid.org/">
      https://orcid.org/0000-0000-0000-000Y</nameIdentifier>
     <affiliation affiliationIdentifier="https://ror.org/yyyyy"
                  affiliationIdentifierScheme="ROR">Example University</affiliation>
  </contributor>
</contributors>

RDA metadata standard:

  • Note: the contributors defined in the RDA standard should be passed through to the DataCite contributors section along with the following 2 additional contributor types:
    HostingInstitution - It is good practice to identify the system/repository that will be providing the
    landing page for this DMP ID.
    Producer - The institution(s) responsible for the ownership of the DMP. People can change
    institutions over time so this allows us to record the provenance directly.
"contributor": [
  {
    "name": "Doe PhD, Jane",
    "role": ["http://credit.niso.org/contributor-roles/investigation"],
    "affiliation": {
      "name": "Example University",
      "affiliation_id": { "type": "ror", "identifier": "https://ror.org/yyyyy" }
    },
    "contributor_id": { 
      "type": "orcid", 
      "identifier": "https://orcid.org/0000-0000-0000-000Y" 
    }
  }
]

Funding

DataCite:

<fundingReferences>
  <fundingReference>
    <funderName>National Generic Funder</funderName>
    <funderIdentifier funderIdentifierType="Crossref Funder ID">
      https://doi.org/10.13039/00000000
    </funderIdentifier>
    <awardNumber awardURI="https://awards.example.org/123">
      123
    </awardNumber>
    <awardTitle>Lorem Ipsum</awardTitle>
  </fundingReference>
</fundingReferences>

RDA metadata standard:
Note: that the RDA standard does not provide a way to convey a name/title for the award so we just repeat the title of the DMP here

"project": [
  {
    "funding": [
      {
        "name": "National Generic Funder",
        "funder_id": { "type": "fundref", "identifier": "https://doi.org/10.13039/000000000" },
        "grant_id": { "type": "url", "identifier": "http://awards.example.org/123" },
      }
   ]
 }
