The Open Preservation Foundation has endorsed the TRUST principles for digital repositories. Following on from several months of RDA consultation and discussion within the digital repository community, a set of guiding principles have been developed to facilitate best practice in trustworthy data management: transparency, responsibility, user focus, sustainability, and technology.
The principles were recently published in an article for Scientific Data. The article explains that, repositories must earn the trust of the communities they intend to serve and demonstrate that they are reliable and capable of appropriately managing the data they hold. The TRUST Principles provide a mnemonic to remind data repository stakeholders of the need to develop and maintain the infrastructure to foster continuing stewardship of data and enable future use of their data holdings.
