Use case for: Review Process for a Removal of Data

  • Creator
  • #141215

    The amount of research data is growing faster than Moore’s Law with the additional side remark that it is not even clear, that the data storage devices are still underlying the Moore’s Law anymore. Therefore there is the obvious question, what data need to be kept and how long, which implies, that scientific digital objects are not always stored permanently but might be removed at some point of time. Therefore a process is needed that organizes the removal of data, which can be influenced by the scientific communities as much as necessary and is automated as far as possible.
