Data Preservation in High Energy Physics

  title={Data Preservation in High Energy Physics},
  author={Dphep Study Group},
Data from high-energy physics (HEP) experiments are collected with significant financial and human effort and are mostly unique. At the same time, HEP has no coherent strategy for data preservation and re-use. An inter-experimental Study Group on HEP data preservation and long-term analysis was convened at the end of 2008 and held two workshops, at DESY (January 2009) and SLAC (May 2009). This document is an intermediate report to the International Committee for Future Accelerators (ICFA) of… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

Data Preservation in High Energy Physics
The physics case for data preservation and the preservation models established by the group are presented, as well as a description of the transverse global projects and strategies already in place.
Data Management and Preservation Planning for Big Science
The MaRDI-Gross project is discussed, which has been developing a toolkit to provide guidelines on the application of best practice in DMP planning within big science projects, targeted primarily at projects’ engineering managers, but intending also to help funders collaborate on DMP plans which satisfy the requirements imposed on them.
