Which metadata fields do you think should appear at the top of the record in the Discovery Service?

This is a vote for the pilot institutions on the Jisc UK Research Data Discovery Service project. Which metadata fields do you think would be of most benefit to a user of the service? Which ones would you like to see at the top? Vote for your favourites and feel free to provide justification (e.g. use case) for your selections. Add counter arguments as you see fit.

Note: In the first instance, this will be main fields only (no sub fields) - if you would like to make a case for the sub-field, please add it as an argument. We can run a round 2 if required.
