Preservation Policy

Attendees: Digital Library community, institutional data policy makers and legal advisors, copyright and intellectual property experts, (HEP) researchers and policy makers.

Location: University of Chicago

Purpose: Many HEP collaborations and research institutions have a growing interest in data publication and curation and major funding agencies are establishing requirements for data sharing and management. The purpose of this workshop is to (i) identify the major drivers and how these requirements impact the way researchers manage their data; (ii) explore the data policies the HEP community needs in order to share and preserve data; and (iii) identify how these policy issues affect data curation architecture.

Inputs: Input from other fields on what policies they have established and how they impacted the underlying software and hardware infrastructure.

Outcomes: Collect various research data stewardship policies and recommendations of other institutions.
