The Digital Curation Centre, in collaboration with DataONE, have released the latest publication in their series of How-to Guides: How to Discover Requirements for Research Data Management Services
Co-authored by DCC’s Angus Whyte and DataONE’s Suzie Allard, the guide provides an overview of the RDM service development context, and details methods used to plan, elicit, analyze, document and prioritize service users’ requirements.
Including contributions from D. Scott Brandt, Susan Wells Parham, and Sherry Lake, some common approaches are summarized including Data Asset Framework, CARDIO (Collaborative Assessment of Research Data Infrastructure and Objectives) Data Curation Profiles, DMVitals, and DataONE Stakeholder Profiles, Personas and Scenarios.
The guide complements last year’s release How to Develop Research Data Management Services. See more at: http://www.dcc.ac.uk/how-discover-requirements
