The phrase ‘preparing data for deposit’ might conjure images of the final
days of a research project, when staff may be more concerned with getting
started on their next piece of work (and possibly their next place of work)
than tidying up loose ends from the research that is due to conclude. But
decisions affecting the suitability of data for longer-term preservation,
sharing and re-use are taken throughout the project’s lifespan, hence
data for deposit truly begins at the very start of the research lifecycle,
in the conceptualisation and planning phases.*
