Digital Curation of Research Data  experiences oh, Stefan Strathmann, Achim Osswald, Jens Ludwig

Recently the government of the United Kingdom decided that publicly funded research publications and research data must be freely available and accessible to the public in all situations in which there are no copyright issues or other legal aspects that would prevent it. It is expected that the European Commission will publish similar requirements in the context of the next framework program Horizon 2020 starting at the end of 2013. The newly funded Research Data Alliance (RDA) is one example of the increasing interest in these topics worldwide. Ensuring that research data are accessible, sharable, and re-usable over time makes several further steps possible:

• Research data are documented and could therefore be validated. • Research data could be the basis for other and new research questions, since they could be an integral part of the (digital) research lifecycle from the very beginning. • Research data could be re-analysed by using new, innovative digital methods which were unknown at the moment of data acquisition. • Research data could be used by other disciplines, therefore encouraging interdisciplinary research.
