Abstract: "If I was to sum up the topic that comes up time and time again, not only in the articles in this issue, it is the necessity for standards to enable digital curation. It doesn't matter what type of data is being curated; anything from metadata about research projects, publications and grey literature, the methodologies and results of laboratory work, or the measurements from long-term observational missions. One thing is certain, the rate at which data is being created is increasing so dramatically that the only way to manage curation is to automate it, and the only way to do that is to have standardized structures and ontologies."
