CODATA and the DDI Alliance collaborated to present free online training at the European DDI conference 2022. The training event introduced DDI and describes the major specifications, DDI Codebook and DDI Lifecycle, as well as the upcoming DDI Cross-Domain Integration. In addition, DDI tool demonstrations show how DDI can be used in practice.
Speaker: Adrian Dusa (Romanian Social Data Archive).

DDI Codebook is a metadata specification for providing detailed, machine-actionable and human-readable metadata about individual studies and their data files in an XML format.

DDI Lifecycle addresses the needs of metadata management not only for archives and data disseminators, but also throughout the data lifecycle, from data collection and survey design through the end stages.
DDI Cross-Domain Integration
Speaker: Arofan Gregory (CODATA): view slides
Slides DOI: 10.5281/zenodo.7465023
DDI Cross-Domain Integration is a forthcoming standard which is intended to complement other metadata specifications – notably DDI Codebook and DDI Lifecycle – by making it possible to share and reuse data across domain boundaries and within and between research infrastructures.
DDI Tools demonstrations
Slides DOI: 10.5281/zenodo.7465042
This session will provide an overview of many of the tools and service providers available to those who are interested in actively implementing DDI. The intention is to help users understand what tools and services exist for the different specifications, and who they should talk to in order to learn more.
