Because good research needs good data


The DCC has recently set up a mechanism to capture and reference examples of institutional research data management policies. We're doing this because we think it's useful to track their existence and because many people have told us that they would find it easier to create policies for their own institution if they could see some working examples. As a national coordination body, it's definitely our role to collate these.

The DCC's Digital Curation Reference Manual is designed to help data custodians, producers and users better understand the challenges they face and the roles that they play in creating, managing and preserving digital information over time. For each topic covered, suggestions for best practice and real life examples are given. The DCC are delighted to announce the release of the following new instalment.
