“What To Keep?” a new Jisc research data report by Neil Beagrie of Charles Beagrie Ltd has just been published by Jisc.

What to keep in terms of research data has been a recognised issue for some time but research data management and in particular appraisal and selection (i.e. “what to keep and why”) has become a more significant focus in recent years as volumes and diversity of data have grown, and as the available infrastructure for ‘keeping’ has become more diverse.

The purpose of the What to Keep report is to provide new insights that will be useful to institutions, research funders, researchers, publishers, and Jisc on what research data to keep and why, the current position, and suggestions for improvement.

This report provides insights on how What to Keep decisions can be guided and supported, and the ten study recommendations and the potential implementations for them, provide practical suggestions for future development. The analysis of emerging themes and mappings is available as a set of tables. Seven mini case studies illustrate in more detail the approaches and rationale for what to keep for different repositories, stakeholders and disciplinary areas.
