This software was developed with support from the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF 01GQ1905), the US National Science Foundation (NSF 1912266), and the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG, German Research Foundation) under grant SFB 1451 (431549029, INF project).

NOTE: Future development

We're working on a newer, leaner, more modular, and more interoperable solution to the same challenge that the current datalad-catalog aims to address. This new development is taking place within the broader context of making DataLad datasets interoperable with linked and semantic (meta)data. For more background, see this issue. To keep up to date, follow progress at psychoinformatics-de/datalad-concepts, psychoinformatics-de/shacl-vue, and in the new development branch. Because of this redirected focus, datalad-catalog itself will be downscaled by focusing on maintenance and assessing the priority of new features on a case-by-case basis.
