Information Quality Cluster

Data Stewardship Committee


There are many perspectives on quality. For a data set to be internationally recognized as an authoritative and responsive resource of information and guidance to data providers there needs to be agreement on how best to implement data quality standards and best practices for their science data systems, datasets, and data/metadata dissemination services. This session will walk through the many dimensions that are now recognised as part of Quality data preservation and accessiblity.

Potential topics:

  • Scientific quality - accuracy, precision, uncertainty, validity and suitability for use (fitness for purpose) in various applications
  • Product quality - How well the scientific quality is assessed and documented
  • Stewardship quality - How well data are being managed, preserved, and cared for by an archive or repository
  • Service quality - How easy it is for users to find, get, understand, trust, and use data


Notes is available at:

Two talks from the ESIP IQ cluster at the ARDC TechTalk forum:

Take-away messages:

  1. E2SIP breakout group very interested in the ESIP Information Quality Cluster work with Data Quality that has been developed around:

    1. Science Quality

    2. Product Quality

    3. Stewardship Quality

    4. Service Quality

  2. Interest as a group on how we can provide consistent and meaningful Data Quality information to the end-users (i.e., interoperability of ‘data quality measures’).

  3. Interest in the feedback from the user community on that measure of ‘data quality’.

Actions forward:

  • Organise webinar for full presentation from Dave Jones (StormCenter Communications).

  • Future collaborations with ESIP:

    • Organise follow-up discussion about the  topics presented by ESIP Information Cluster and discuss how to establish the link between E2SIP and ESIP on this work.  

    • Half-day workshop at 2020 E2SIP meeting?
