Dataset Metadata:

DatasetMetadata.pdf is a metadata profile for datasets including recommendations for field repeatability, and support for controlled vocabularies. This profile assumes a data package model, in which submissions must contain at least two datafiles, including a "readme" file and a file (or multiple files) of data.
