Short introduction describing the activities and the scope of the group

Tracking provenance for research data is vital to science and scholarship, providing answers to common questions researchers and institutions pose when sharing and exchanging data.

The tasks for this Working Group focus on finding, detailing and recommending best practices for provenance representation and management.

This group will conduct its work in the manner of a business analysis task: identifying business needs and determining solutions to business problems. Since RDA WGs are not themselves research groups (rather groups of researchers and research agencies), this group will look for existing practice and re-present that for use rather than generate new practice.

The main activities of the Working Group are:

* Capturing provenance Use Cases
* from RDA groups
* from provenance practitioners generally
* Describing provenance design patterns
* particularly from established practice
* Listing tools for provenance
* Listing provenance data collections
