Notes

Abstract: Focusing on the main research question what the critical roles and competencies of data curators are in supporting research data management lifecycle, this paper adopts multi-case study method, with data curation and data governance models, to analyze the roles and their competencies of data curators based on different contexts such as enterprises and academic libraries in mainland China. Via the data lifecycle analysis in different contexts, the critical roles such as data supervisor, data steward and data custodian in guaranteeing data quality and efficiency of data reuse are put forward. Based on the general factors of capability summarized via existing literature, suggestions for empowering data curators’ competencies are raised according to the corresponding contexts. Findings of this paper are as follows: Besides digital archiving and preservation, more emphasis should be put on data governance in the field of data curation. During different contexts of data curation practices, roles of data curation are not equivalent to stakeholders of data governance. Different roles of data curators would take their own parts in the process of data curation and should be specified according to given contexts. The roles, competencies and empowerment strategies might have significance for the fields of both data curation and data governance.
