Five Steps to decide what data to keep - DCC Checklist for Appraising Research Data

This guide takes you through five steps:
1.     Consider potential reuse purposes - what aims could the data meet?
2.     Check for indications that it must be kept considering legal or policy compliance risks
3.     Identify which data should be kept as it may have long-term value
4.     Weigh up the costs - which data management costs have already been incurred and therefore contribute to its value, and how much more is planned and affordable? Where will the funds to pay these costs come from? Considering these questions will give you the cost element of your data appraisal and should help identify any need for external advice, e.g., on how to deal with any shortfall in the budget.
5.     Complete your data appraisal - this will list what data must, should or could be kept to fulfil potential reuse purposes. The appraisal should also summarise any actions needed to prepare the data for deposit, or the
justification for not keeping it.

This guide draws mainly on the existing DCC guide, How to Appraise and Select Research Data for Curation. NERC Data Value Checklist, and University of Bristol Research Data Evaluation Guide. Section 4 is adapted from the UK Data Service’s Data management costing tool and checklist.
