Expressed in XML, the DDI metadata specification now supports the entire research data life cycle. DDI metadata accompanies and enables data conceptualization, collection, processing, distribution, discovery, analysis, repurposing, and archiving.” http://www.rdl.sfu.ca/NADDI/about/ Deborah Ludwig, Assistant Dean University of Kansas Libraries
