Scicat allows users to access the metadata of raw and derived data which is taken at experiment facilities. Scientific datasets are linked to proposals and samples. Scientific datasets are can be linked to publications (DOI, PID). SciCat helps keeping track of data provenance (i.e. the steps leading to the final results). Scicat allows users to find data based on the metadata (both your own data and other peoples’ public data). In the long term, SciCat will help to automate scientific analysis workflows.
