Lists entities within the metadata database. With no parameters, it lists all studies, andwith parameters it will list the entries within a study or dataset level. It can also be used to list all possible collaborators or science topics.


Gives the metadata associated with a given study, dataset or data object. In the case of a study, it can also list associated collaborators and science topics.


Removes entities or parameters from the metadata database.


Add or remove co-investigators from a study.


Search the metadata database, tuned to search within different levels and against descriptions, name/value pairs and parameters.

Usage: Rsearch -v
Rsearch -u <url>
Rsearch -t <topicID>
Rsearch -s studyID | -d datasetID -p <name> < <value>
Rsearch -s studyID | -d datasetID -p <name> = <value>
Rsearch -s studyID | -d datasetID -p <name> > <value>
Rsearch [-s studyID | -d datasetID] -k <keyword>
