Because good research needs good data

Peer review

To ensure that the Curation Reference Manual is of the highest quality, we have assembled a peer-review panel that includes a wide range of international experts in the field of digital curation to review each of its instalments and to identify new areas that should be covered. After each instalment has been reviewed by at least two members of the panel, we then make it available for public consultation and comment online.
