Digital Curation Lifecycle Model

Digital Curation Lifecycle Model
Definition: 

The Digital Curation Lifecycle Model provides a graphical, high-level overview of the stages required for successful curation and preservation of data from initial conceptualization through the iterative curation cycle. The model can be used to plan activities within a specific research project, organization, or consortium to ensure all necessary stages are undertaken, each in the correct sequence. It is important to note that the description, preservation planning, community watch, and curate and preserve elements of the model should be considered at all stages of activity.
