Qresp | Curator

Qresp | Curator is a software with a GUI which guides the user in creating metadata from the data associated to a scientific paper (step 1). The metadata gathered during this curation step includes data location, publication details and user-defined attributes. The metadata is generated using the JSON (JavaScript Object Notation) syntax and the metadata file is sent to a document-oriented database. The current implementation uses MongoDB which is an open source software.
