dc.description.abstract The diversity of research topics and resulting datasets in the field of Ecology (the scientific study of ecological systems and their biodiversity) has grown in parallel with developments in research data management. Based on a meta-analysis performed on 93 scientific references, this paper presents a comprehensive overview of the use of metadata tools in the Ecology domain through time. Overall, 40 metadata tools were found to be either referred or used by the research community from 1997 to 2018. In the same period, 50 different initiatives in ecology and biodiversity research were conceptualized and implemented to promote effective data sharing in the community. A relevant concern that stems from this analysis is the need to establish simple methods to promote data interoperability and reuse, so far limited by the production of metadata according to different standards. With this study, we also highlight challenges and perspectives in research data management in the domain of Ecology towards best practice guidelines. en
