Curation is an activity concerned with the preservation of data files and access to the research data. It plays a key role in making data files searchable, identifiable, and easily accessible, at present and in the future. Curation warrants that data are authentic, their provenance and purpose is well documented; that the data files are securely stored; their integrity and fixity maintained, so that the data are re-usable and inter-operable.
