Project Close-Out Checklist for Research Data


The close-out checklist describes a range of activities for helping ensure that research data are properly managed at the end of a project or at researcher departure. Activities include: making stewardship decisions, preparing files for archiving, sharing data, and setting aside important files in a "FINAL" folder. Two versions of the checklist are available: a Caltech Library branded version and a generic editable version.
