Digital Curation Centre
The Digital Curation Centre (DCC) are experts in curating digital research data. They offer advice and practical help to anyone who needs to store, manage and protect digital data. DCC also provide DMP Online which can be used to build a data management plan.
The DCC Curation Lifecycle Model provides a graphical, high-level overview of the stages required for successful curation and preservation of data from initial conceptualisation through the iterative curation cycle. The model can be used to plan activities within a specific research project, organisation, or consortium to ensure all necessary stages are undertaken, each in the correct sequence.
