Case studies

To better relate theory to practice, we offer a range of case studies carried out by DCC. Use cases describe how research data management and curation are being addressed in practice, illustrating how relevant challenges are addressed and opportunities explored by researchers, their institutions and service providers. The case studies are listed in the left-hand menu.

In 2013 we began a series of case studies to accompany the new DCC guide How to Develop Research Data Management Services. These cover specific components of an RDM service and are listed below.

Further case studies are planned, including ones on using CKAN to manage data and business planning.
