Bridging the curation gap

The "curation gap" is a central topic to research data management. This is the discrepancy between the needs and actions taken by researchers and curators in research data management.


A recent article written by our Digital Curation office in collaboration with Prof. Andreas Fischlin (D-USYS) discusses how the curation gap can be narrowed by taking simple steps ensuring self-contained archiving of research data throughout its life-cycle.
