PMCID: 5827688
PMID: 29485625
DOI: 10.1038/sdata.2018.23

[…] omics data. In fact, there are now many centralized repositories that cover all areas of biomedical and biological research. These repositories are indexed for searching and browsing by sites such as DataMed and FAIRSharing. Similarly, several efforts have been made to aggregate and index bioinformatics tools, for example, OMICtools.While there are paths to start from a dataset landing page in a c […]


Improving average ranking precision in user searches for biomedical research datasets

PMID: 29220475
DOI: 10.1093/database/bax083

[…] e dataset metadata and content, and allows end users to locate the appropriate research data from the set of indexed repositories.In particular, bioCADDIE implements a search engine prototype, called DataMed, using ElasticSearch (). DataMed catalogues research datasets based on a standard core metadata model, called Data Tag Suite (DATS), which is designed to be generic, applicable to any type of […]


DATS, the data tag suite to enable discoverability of datasets

Sci Data
PMCID: 5460592
PMID: 28585923
DOI: 10.1038/sdata.2017.59

[…] ped iteratively with the input and feedback of a community of international researchers, service providers and knowledge representation experts, DATS is currently implemented by the bioCADDIE team in DataMed; this is the intended and primary scope for this metadata model. In the first instance, the bioCADDIE team has mapped the target repositories’ model to DATS to inform the implementation of dat […]


ESR statement on radiation protection: globalisation, personalised medicine and safety (the GPS approach)

PMCID: 3846938
PMID: 24092563
DOI: 10.1007/s13244-013-0287-z

[…] asing inappropriate medical exposure to ionising radiation has been observed [–]. Further, there are vast variations in patient doses for the same radiological examination as evidenced by recent Dose DataMed II report [].It is these results that create a compelling situation to act with responsibility, as assigned to its profession through Directives and Standards. While conscious of the need to w […]
