What is it?

It is a pilot to demonstrate the value of a dedicated set of terms for the Research Data Domain. Each term has a unique identifier (UUID) and a URL that can be used as references to enhance reading comprehension of documents by hyperlinking terms to their definition. The URL for each term contains a link to a "Discussion" page to complete the feedback loop with the community of users.
