Data Preservation and Archiving

There are three primary stakeholders in the data archiving process - content creators (researchers producing data), information-seekers (users trying to access data), and data curators (the people stewarding data and brokering data exchange). These stakeholders often have competing interests. Content creators typically want to deposit data quickly, without migrating datasets, writing new documentation, or providing additional information. Information-seekers typically want to access data immediately, in a widely-used format, with ample documentation.
