Abstract: e-Science enables new forms and layers of research. It generates massive amounts of data at different research stages. Yet the many technologies used transform data and put its integrity at risk. Readability and usefulness are jeopardized not just by technical factors. Data’s future quality – richness, trustworthiness –is a function of investment in it. But should all data be kept? What other issues arise, for whom? We highlight findings of the e-Science Data Curation report and present the Digital Curation Centre, the first of its kind in the world, and its role in providing resources and support for digital curation and research.

Keywords: e-Science, AHM 2004
