SCARP Synthesis Report

The Digital Curation Centre is pleased to announce the report "Data Dimensions: Disciplinary Differences in Research Data Sharing, Reuse and Long term Viability" by Key Perspectives, as one of the final outputs of the DCC SCARP project.

The project investigated attitudes and approaches to data deposit, sharing and reuse, curation and preservation, over a range of research fields in differing disciplines.

The synthesis report (which drew on the SCARP case studies plus a number of others, identified in the Appendix), identifies factors that help understand how curation practices in research groups differ in disciplinary terms.

This provides a backdrop to different digital curation approaches.
