Data set

From Science Europe Data Glossary

Definition: a data set (or dataset) is any organized collection of data.
Explanation: the terms database and data set are sometimes used interchangeably, although a database is actually a type of a data set. A research data set should meet the requirements of being assessable, discoverable, intelligible, interoperable to specific quality standards, and useable beyond the original purpose for which it was collected.
