DASISH work on data preservation and curation

The objectives of DASISH activities in this field are to map and discuss the state of the art with regard to available deposit offers and services within the SSH area and to develop strategies to overcome current bottlenecks and fill the gaps in this area. The ambition is also to make recommendations for best practice models of data archive services that guarantee long-term preservation of and access to research data for the communities. This includes policy rules and access models that can easily be adopted by common data services to provide or enhance long-term preservation and curation.

We have assessed existing models and frameworks for digital curation and trustworthiness of digital repositories, and – based on that – developed a “guideline of guidelines” for data archives and repositories that aspire to provide trustworthy data preservation and curation services. This “Roadmap for Preservation and Curation in the SSH” is presented in this newsletter.
