Our Values

Standards-driven. DCN data curation techniques strive to be practical and transparent.

Trusted. We strive to add value to data while maintaining data integrity and the upholding ethical responsibilities of data sharing.

Inquisitive. Our research aims to explore how well-curated data are used to advance research and education in ways that are measurably of greater reuse value than non-curated data.

Empowering. By sharing tools, providing a pipeline for training data curators, and promoting data curation practices across the profession the Data Curation Network will build an innovative community that enriches capacities for data curation writ large.
