Beagrie, N., & Houghton J. (2013).  The Value and Impact of the Archaeology Data Service: A Study and Methods for Enhancing Sustainability. Investigated and attempted to measure the value and impact of the Archaeology Data Service (ADS) Reviewed value and impact evaluation literature; analyzed ADS reports and documentation; conducted 15 interviews with ADS stakeholders; conducted 2 online surveys, one of ADS data depositors and one of ADS users Note: This study and the similar study of the British Atmospheric Data Centre (Node 34) both use the same value metrics framework Measurement, Metrics, Targeted
Beagrie, N., & Houghton J. (2013).  The Value and Impact of the British Atmospheric Data Centre. Surveyed and analyzed perceptions of the value of the digital collections held by the British Atmospheric Data Centre (BADC), and quantified the value and impact of those collections for BADC’s user community using a range of economic approaches; investigated the extension of the methodology used in Beagrie et al. 2012 and Beagrie and Houghton 2013a to the BADC. Note: The results of Beagrie et al. 2012, Beagrie and Houghton 2013a and Beagrie and Houghton 2013b were summarized and collated in Beagrie and Houghton 2014. Similar to Beagrie et al. 2012 and Beagrie and Houghton 2013, methods included a combination of literature and documentation review, review of reports from BADC, 13 interviews of BADC users and depositors, and two online surveys, one of BADC data depositors and one of BADC users. Note: This study and the similar study of the Archaeology Data Service (Node 33) both use the same value metrics framework Measurement, Targeted

Bigagli, L., Sveinsdottir T., Wessels B., Smallwood R., Linde P., Tsoukala V., et al. (2014).  Infrastructural and technological challenges and potential solutions. Investigated infrastructural and technological barriers to Open Access and preservation of research data in Europe. This work was conducted within the EU FP7 funded project RECODE, which focuses on developing policy recommendations for Open Access to Research Data in Europe. In particular, this work is coordinated by RECODE Work Package 2 (WP2), Infrastructure and technology. It distinguishes between different categories of stakeholders in terms of how the experience and respond to these challenges Conducted desk research, an online survey, interviews, and a validation workshop Measurement, Metrics, Wider
