Blair, Douglas; Dawson, Barbara E.; Fary, Michael; Hillegas, Curtis W.; Hopkins, Brian W.; Lyons, Yolanda; McCullough, Heather; McMullen, Donald F.; Owen, Kim; Ratliff, Mark; Williams, Harry
The EDUCAUSE Center for Analysis and Research Data Management Working Group (ECAR-DM) has created a framework for research data storage as an aid for higher education institutions establishing and evaluating their institution's research data storage efforts. This paper describes areas for consideration and suggests graduated criteria to assist in that effort. ECAR-DM recognizes that each institution is unique in its requirements for research data storage and that an institution must choose its strategies and directions based on its individual needs. The framework operates with the understanding that research data storage planning and management starts with a conversation. Strategic communication and planning are critical to ascertain the support resources that are vital throughout all stages of the research data life cycle.
