CODATA is collaborating on an international glossary of research data management terms and definitions:

Dubbed the IRIDIUM (International Research Data Management) Glossary, this is an evolving partnership initiative growing out of a pilot project last year.  You can review the current glossary at  (it is currently branded as a ‘dictionary’ but will be rebranded, post-pilot, as a ‘glossary’).
The Working Group’s outputs (new and revised terms) will shortly be made available for a month-long period of Open Review with the international research community.  
We invite participation from any and all experts, from any country, with an interest in this glossary to participate in the Open Review.
