    Stronger together: the case for cross-sector collaboration in identifying
    and preserving at-risk data

    Data management, curation, and preservation efforts are chronically
    under-resourced and overlooked, and we all care about data safety,
    accuracy, use, and preservation. The trustworthiness of data is critically
    intertwined with the factors described above, e.g. metadata, provenance,
    transparency, security, and community [17]. If those factors are not taken
    into account, rescued data will be of no use regardless of how many times
    they are duplicated. There are many data professionals and other
    stakeholders in the data management community collaborating formally and
    informally to provide stewardship and to identify at-risk data, curate
    at-risk data, and mitigate the chances for data to become “at risk.” The
    grassroots data rescue efforts like DataRefuge and others have brought
    together an energetic, diverse community of passionate citizens and
    professionals with valuable skills and expertise. Initial connections
    between DataRefuge and broader communities such as the Research Data
    Alliance and ESIP have shown value, and point out important gaps and
    opportunities moving forward. The more we can work together to preserve the
    data that matter to us all, the more effective and sustainable the our work
    will be.
