The Data Life Cycle: An Overview The data life cycle has eight components: Plan : description of the data that will be compiled, and how the data will be managed and made accessible throughout its lifetime Collect : observations are made either by hand or with sensors or other instruments and the data are placed a into digital form Assure : the quality of the data are assured through checks and inspections Describe : data are accurately and thoroughly described using the appropriate metadata standards Preserve : data are submitted to an appropriate long-term archive (i.e. data center ) Discover : potentially useful data are located and obtained, along with the relevant information about the data ( metadata ) Integrate : data from disparate sources are combined to form one homogeneous set of data that can be readily analyzed Analyze : data are analyzed
The lifecycle according to who? This 8-component description is from the point of view of only the people who obsessively think about this "problem".
Ask a researcher and I think you'll hear that lifecycle means something like:
collect -> analyze -> publish
or a more complex data management plan might be:
ask someone -> receive data in email -> analyze -> cite -> publish -> tenure
To most people lifecycle means "while I am using the data" and archiving means "my storage guy makes backups occasionally".
Asking people to be aware of the whole cycle outlined here is a non-starter, but I think there is another approach to achieve what we want... dramatic pause [to be continued]
