New documents on data and documentation processing - updated

Article dated: 22-May-09

The UK Data Archive Data Services section has released another document in the set of six procedural documents covering aspects of ingest processing work undertaken at the UKDA, a guide to Qualitative Dataset Processing Procedures.

The first five illustrate the main techniques used for the ingest processing of data and documentation at the UKDA, and the sixth details quality assurance procedures for UKDA Data Catalogue records.

The five ingest processing documents, Data Processing Standards, Data Processing Quick Reference Guide, Quantitative Data Processing Procedures, Qualitative Dataset Processing Procedures and Documentation Processing Procedures, replace the previous two guides to data and documentation processing techniques released in 2007. Further volumes in the series will be produced.

The documents should be read in conjunction with the managing and sharing data pages recently added to the UKDA web site.
