Hi Mikael

The HCLS community profile is a simple extension to DCAT that incorporates dataset versioning.

You should also be aware of the current discussions in the W3C DXWG.

Hi,

thank you for the suggestion, hadn't heard of HCLS so it is good to know.

I decided to use DCAT for this case being simple and using already familiar DC and FOAF.

Mikael

Hi Mikael,

You might want to checkout this set of recommendations:
"Dataset Descriptions: HCLS Community Profile"
https://www.w3.org/TR/hcls-dataset/


Here is an article describing it:
"The health care and life sciences community profile for dataset descriptions"
https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4991880/


There is also a tutorial from last year's SWAT4LS conference ( http://swat4ls.org/ ):

Hi,

you confirmed that this is the way to go. Just a bit earlier found this example which is the same: https://www.w3.org/TR/vocab-dcat/#describing-catalog-records-metadata


Thanks!

Hello Mikael

An approach I have used in a project with the similar problematic is the following (basically you have 2 ressources, 1 to identify the file, 1 to identify the record, connected with a foaf:primaryTopic - the idea is to say that the file is the primary topic of the record) :

# record with date of insert in the triplestore
_:Record1 a foaf:Document .
_:Record1 dcterms:created "2017-02-03" .
_:Record1 dcterms:creator "user of the system" .
_:Record1 foaf:primaryTopic _:File1 .
# file with date of creation of the file
_:File1 a foaf:Document .
_:File1 foaf:name "document1.docx" .
_:File1 dcterms:created "2010-08-01" .
_:File1 dcterms:creator "author of the file" .


Online example : record : https://www.nakala.fr/page/resource/11280/c7fb4f7d, file https://www.nakala.fr/page/data/11280/c7fb4f7d.


Hope this helps
Thomas

Hi,

hope this is a correct forum to ask for help.

We are using Dublin Core and NEPOMUK schemas to describe files of a Windows network drive (document1.docx, image1.jpg...). Metadata is stored in a triplestore.

Anyone know if there is a schema to describe the records in the triplestore? Or should we model the data in a way that Dublin Core can be used to describe both the files and the records containing the metadata of the files?

For example:

We are using dcterms:created to describe the date when a text document was created. So we we would need a some-schema:created to describe when the metadata of that document was stored in the triplestore.

Br,
