The UK Data Archive Teams up with Members of the Digital Curation Centre (DCC) for Data Curation
The UK Data Archive is teaming up with members of the Digital Curation Centre (DCC) to develop a UK-wide registry or catalogue of research data collections held in universities and data centres.
The Jisc-funded six-month pilot project follows from a rich legacy of recent work in embedding research data management and sharing in universities, to support data reuse. But in order for data sharing and secondary analysis to yield major benefits, such data need to be easily findable and accessible. This project aims to address this emerging need.
