VOResource and DataCite: Converging Metadata Schemes

Published online: 27 July 2018
For the past 10 years, VOResource, together with its extensions, has been the metadata schema used for service description and discovery in the Virtual Observatory (VO). We are currently evolving the core VOResource schema into a version 1.1, in particular to ensure smooth interoperability with the DataCite metadata kernel. In this contribution, we will give a brief overview of how and why VOResource has supplemented Dublin Core with “actionable” metadata, as well as how the current evolution will update it to provide easy paths for VO data providers into the DataCite world.
