Description/Abstract

The explosion in the production of scientific data in recent years is straining the conventional systems for integration, analysis, interpretation and dissemination of the data and constraining the whole scientific process. Support for handling the large quantities of diverse information can be provided by the e-science methodologies and the cyber-infrastructure that enables collaborative handling of this data. Regard needs to be taken of the whole process involved in the scientific discovery including consideration of the requirements of the users and consumers further down the information chain might ideally like to impose on the early stage generators of the data. As the degree of digital capture in the laboratory increases it is possible to improve the automatic acquisition of the ‘context of the data’ as well as the data itself. This provides an opportunity the data creators to ensure that many of the problems often encountered by data curators at later stages are avoided. We wish to elevate curation to something to be considered by the laboratory scientist as part of good laboratory practice, not something to be something only of concern to the few specialising in archival processes.
