This document describes an XML encoding standard for IVOA Resource Metadata, referred to as VOResource. This schema is primarily intended to support interoperable registries used for discovering resources; however, any application that needs to describe resources may use this schema. In this document, we define the types and elements that make up the schema as representations of metadata terms defined in the IVOA standard, Resource Metadata for the Virtual Observatory [Hanicsh et al. 2004]. We… 
StandardsRegExt: a VOResource Schema Extension for Describing IVOA
This document describes an XML encoding standard for metadata about IVOA standards themselves, referred to as StandardsRegExt. It is intended to allow for the discovery of a standard via an IVOA
VODataService: a VOResource Schema Extension for Describing Collections and Services
It is intended that the VODataService data types will be particularly useful in describing services that support standard IVOA service protocols, which enhances the functionality and interoperability inside the Astronomical Community.
IVOA Recommendation: TAPRegExt: a VOResource Schema Extension for Describing TAP Services
An XML encoding standard for metadata about services implementing the table access protocol TAP [TAP], referred to as TAPRegExt is described, which delivers information to both humans and software on the languages, output formats, and upload methods supported by the service.
A Controlled Vocabulary and Metadata Schema for Materials Science Data Discovery
The International Materials Resource Registries (IMRR) working group of the Research Data Alliance (RDA) was created to spur initial development of a federated registry system to allow for easier
Virtual Observatory Publishing with DaCHS
Abstract The Data Center Helper Suite DaCHS is an integrated publication package for building VO and Web services, supporting the entire workflow from ingestion to data mapping to service definition.
IVOA Identifiers Version 2.0
The syntax for IVOA Identifiers has been defined to encourage global-uniqueness naturally and to maximize the freedom of resource providers to control the character content of an identifier.
The Virtual Observatory Registry
The server-side aspects of the standards and their application, as regards the functional components (registries), the resource records in both format and content, the exchange of resource records between registries (harvesting), as well as the creation and management of the identifiers used in the system based on the notion of authorities are discussed.
Using Provenance for Personalized Quality Ranking of Scientific Datasets
A model and architecture for data quality scoring is presented, machine learning techniques are applied to generate a quality function that uses provenance as proxy for missing metadata, and the results shown that for some scientific tasks, quality scoresbased on provenance closely track the quality scores based on complete metadata properties.
Italian center for astronomical archives publishing solution: modular and distributed
A first administration tool has been developed to ease the build up and maintenance of the TAP SCHEMA component of TAP services including also ObsCore maintenance capability and future work will be devoted at widening the range of VO protocols covered by the set of available modules, improve the configuration management and develop specific purpose modules common to all the service components.
Modular VO oriented Java EE service deployer
The main constraints for this new project come from various fields: a better homogenized solution rising from IVOA DAL standards: for example the new DALI (Data Access Layer Interface) specification that acts as a common interface system for previous and oncoming access protocols.
