Second CURATE Working Paper available

The second Working Paper from the CURATE Project is now available. The paper introduces and develops the concept of “data curation” as a framework for the study of data quality from a social science perspective.

It draws attention to how data quality is predicated on distributed forms of labor among various social actors and technical means; to the multiple interaction points between humans and data along the lives of data and their journeys through the world; and to how curation introduces a terminology that speaks to the needs of practitioners as well as to academic theory-building.
