Managing Risks to Scientific Data
Scientific data that are created, stored, or distributed in digital form are at risk of being unavailable or unusable for future research if they are not managed to mitigate the risks of digital data. At CIESIN, the Center for International Earth Science Information Network, of Columbia University, we have identified and described several risks to scientific data, including legality, integrity, interpretability, accessibility, discoverability, security, confidentiality, recoverability, and sustainability. Questions, scenarios, and approaches for mitigating these risks to scientific are offered.
