Curating for Quality: Ensuring Data Quality to Enable New Science

Figshare Admin Nsf
Science is built on observations. If our observational data is bad, we are building a house on sand. Some of our data banks have quality measurements and maintenance, such as the National Climate Data Center and the National Center for Biotechnology Information; but others do not, and we do not even know which scientific data services have quality metrics or what they are.Data quality is an assertion about data properties, typically assumed within a context...
