Title:Extending Curation Profiles to Study Enterprise-level Data Practices
Author(s):Weber, Nicholas M.; Palmer, Carole L.
Subject(s):data curation
workplace studies
research and development policy
Abstract:This poster presents preliminary work in adapting a `curation profiles' approach to study data practices in a corporate enterprise setting. We outline important similarities and differences between the curation of basic vs. applied research data and present preliminary findings from a pilot study with design engineers at a multi-national corporation that manufactures heavy machinery. We show that reproducibility, quality vs. value, and that discovery-driven quality control are key areas for the development of new curation services in this sector. We conclude with some future directions for extending the curation profiles project to new data-intensive workplace settings.
