Publication Abstract

Data curation is the active and on-going management of research data through its lifecycle of interest and usefulness to scholarship, science, and education. Curation activities and policies enable data discovery and retrieval, maintain data quality, and provide for re-use over time. This morning's workshop provides a broad overview of theoretical and practical problems in this emerging field. We will examine and discuss issues related to research processes and lifecycles, scholarly communication, research data collections, appraisal and selection, use and re-use, cost and service models. We will introduce the conception of the Data Curation Profiles Project, and draw on some of our findings to serve as examples during the presentation and discussion.
