The purpose of our recent SCARP project was to investigate the diverse attitudes and approaches to data deposit, sharing and reuse, curation and preservation across disciplines. We hope that our findings will help to encourage further knowledge sharing and promote good practice in digital curation activities throughout all areas.

We used a range of methods to conduct our SCARP research. By combining traditional survey/literature review approaches with seven immersive case studies in selected research communities, we have improved our understanding of the specific issues affecting curation and preservation and highlighted possible ways forward.

Through a series of immersive case studies, the DCC SCARP project (2007-2009) identified disciplinary approaches to data deposit, sharing and re-use, curation and preservation, in each case working with research projects over several months.
