It stands for Research Data Curation Program.
No! RDCP services are free to faculty, students and staff of UC San Diego.
RDCP is part of the Library; staff offices are located in the Biomedical Library Building.
The Library has the expertise and resources necessary to describe, share and preserve your data.
The Library has the Digital Asset Management System (DAMS) to ingest and store your data, and allow others to discover it through the UC San Diego Digital Collections.
The Data Curation process can be very fast and simple, or longer and more complicated, depending on how your data is organized and what you want to do with it. It can be as simple as an email exchange, or require several meetings.
Not necessarily. Some services may require an in-person consultation, but others may be done through email or phone calls.
RDCP can help you meet grant requirements for data sharing, and point you in the right direction for other grant services. We also hold workshops for using the Data Management Plan (DMP) DMPTool, which guides you through an easy step-by-step process for creating agency specific data management plans.
We curate scientific, medical, social science, arts, and humanities data. If your data has research or teaching value, let's talk!
