Description: Enables discovery of relevant metadata and data products at the study, file, and data item (i.e., variable) level. The primary purpose is for discovery of data for re-use (i.e., research and/or analysis), which would enable filtering of search or browse results according to metadata criteria (such as the topical, temporal, or spatial coverage of the data, among others). Additional purposes the view should support are discovery of study products for re-use (e.g., questions or survey instruments for development of another survey) as well as [anything else?]. The group also is considering other potential discovery purposes—discovery of metrics of usage of data products [anything else?]—but are still defining what is in scope.
Out of scope: The Discovery functional view is not intended to (once a study or data item is discovered) provide a thorough description of the study or data for proper re-use; this purpose would be in scope for the Codebook view. The Discovery view also is limited in its coverage of methodology issues to those that would be a factor in discovery, but is not intending to describe the full methodology of how the data was produced (for understanding or to trace back to underlying data sources).
