New Features in Excel for Scientists

Carly Strasser, of the Digital Curation for Excel Project, has posted some ideas about new features that could be added to Excel to make it more useful for scientists. In brief, the list is:

  1. Generate metadata.
  2. Generate a data citation for the data file.
  3. Check the spreadsheet for export compatibility.
  4. Link to archive services.

Feedback and suggestions would be welcome...
