This paper is from the Final Report for an Institute of Museum and Library Services Planning Grant (IMLS LG-55-14-0098-14: Enhancing the Data Curation Profiles to help Bridge the Gap between Researcher and Repository).


Abstract: Despite a general consensus that making research data available is beneficial to many stakeholders, data sharing/curation is still not performed as an integrated step in most research lifecycles or common practice in the academic setting. Given many efforts over the last several years, why aren’t repositories used more by researchers? This question was explored in two workshops meant to consider the next steps in developing the Data Curation Profiles (DCP) Toolkit. It identifies a unique approach to help efforts to increase data deposits in research data repositories from an entrepreneurial perspective.
