Describing the quality of curated e-Science information resources

As more e-Science information resources become available on-line, it is impossible to ignore the fact that many are of extremely variable quality. Very few tools exist by which providers, curators and consumers of e-Science information can discover and document its quality. The Qurator project aims to develop and test such tools in close collaboration with user-scientists, with the long term goal of providing generic information quality support in e-Science.
