Curation actions

Run and validate computer code (e.g., look for missing files and/or errors) in order to find mistakes overlooked in the initial development phase, improving the overall quality of software.

A written record of any changes made to the data during the curation process and by whom. File is often preserved as part of the overall record.

Services that incorporate machine-based search and retrieval functionality that help users identify what data exist, where the data are located, and how can they be accessed (e.g., full-text indexing or web optimization).

A URL (or Uniform Resource Locator) that is monitored by an authority to ensure a stable web location for consistent citation and long-term discoverability. Provides redirection when necessary. E.g., a Digital Object Identifier or DOI.

Information describing any necessary information to use and understand the data. Documentation may be structured (e.g., a code book) or unstructured (e.g., a plain text “Readme” file).

The addition or removal of files.
