Cdisc Define.xml Guide

What You See, Isn't Always What You Get.

The define.xml is a great way to transfer metadata between organizations but like everything it needs to be handled with care. One of the largest or most common misconceptions seems to be regarding the CDISC define.xml contents versus the presented view when opened in a browser with an applied stylesheet. The “I opened it, it looks fine and there were no validation findings, so it’s ok” mentality can miss a lot of genuine issues in the define.xml. This White Paper will provide you with key points on how to prevent your CDISC Define.xml code from common mistakes.
