History

#1 Updated by Matt Jones about 8 years ago

Please discuss this with me before changing it. The use of the word 'Creator' has a long history in the field. There are subtleties with the use of the various terms. Because these are not 'Owners' in a legal sense, people have used a lot of other terms to indicate who created the data, including 'Creator', 'Originator', and 'Author', all of which have their downsides. Creator has a lot of traction in the bibliographic metadata standards (Dublin Core) as well as places like EML in our field.

After all the reviewing we have had by people outside and within NCEAS, I have only had one person confused by this term, so we will keep it.
