    The Site-Based Data Curation (SBDC) project is developing a framework of guidelines and processes for the curation of research data generated at scientifically significant sites. SBDC will advance the professional work of curation by articulating principles, workflows and inter-institutional relationships essential for site-based curation. Work to date has concentrated on stakeholder analysis, with results informing metadata guidelines for capture of essential site-based specifics and clarifying the value in aggregating data around site factors for both scientist and YNP stakeholder groups.
