Data Curation Continuum Diagrams


This diagram came out of work undertaken at Monash University to explore in the early 2000s how to support a range of research infrastructure projects in the context of an institutional deployment of a research repository.

The original Data Curation Continuum work was described in:

Treloar, A., Groenewegen, D. and Harboe-Ree, C. (2007). 'The Data Curation Continuum: managing data objects in institutional repositories', Dlib, September/October. Available online at DOI:10.1045/september2007-treloar.

An improved version of the diagram (the one most often used and cited) was described in:

Treloar, A. and Harboe-Ree, C. (2008). "Data management and the curation continuum: how the Monash experience is informing repository relationships". Proceedings of VALA 2008, Melbourne, February. Available online at http://www.vala.org.au/vala2008-proceedings/vala2008-session-6-treloar.

A significantly reworked and rethought version of the diagram was described in a ten-year retrospective article:
