Title: Stewardship of Research Data
Author: Parham, Susan Wells ; Murray-Rust, Catherine
Abstract: The Stewardship of Research Data Proposal recommends the development of an institute-wide data stewardship framework, with a focus on providing long-term access and preservation of Georgia Tech research data. Georgia Tech is, and should continue to be, recognized globally as a source for quality research data. To continue in this capacity, we require the institutional ability to capture, manage, and retain the valuable data sets produced by our researchers. The goal of this proposal is to present the rationale for a coherent set of research data services, including institutional policies and technical infrastructure, with coordination among campus service providers. Proposal recommendations include areas for improvement; an institute-level working group to establish responsible research data stewardship; a central web presence for research data information; and a strategy for the development of a data repository with external storage and replication. Financial resources are required for research data curation and preservation technology and services.
