    7. 7. Christy Caldwell caldwell@ucsc.edu http://bit.ly/gamesrdap Perspective: Games Scholars interested in development PROCESS as much as CONTENT.
    8. 8. Christy Caldwell caldwell@ucsc.edu http://bit.ly/gamesrdap The Awesome: Establish a lab or departmental wide Data Management Policy… Use it for research. And teach it to undergrads. Draft Recommendations “Swimming Elephant” by Karen
    9. 9. Christy Caldwell caldwell@ucsc.edu http://bit.ly/gamesrdap The Interesting: Cloud file versioning is highly unstable. Google docs file versioning collapses over time. Draft Recommendations “PHP Elephant” by Scott Beale
    10. 10. Christy Caldwell caldwell@ucsc.edu http://bit.ly/gamesrdap The Obvious (but good to include): •Note file naming conventions. •Note file storage and organization practices. •Provide abundant comments in source code. •Document programs (formats & versions) used in the creation of game files and assets. •Set up a mailing list and use it. Draft Recommendations leah-saulnier.artistwebsites.com/
    11. 11. Christy Caldwell caldwell@ucsc.edu http://bit.ly/gamesrdap •Retention and extraction policies for cloud services. •More case studies. •Tool development. •Copyright clarity for non-traditional scholarly works. •No unified scholarly communication practices around games, or digital objects in general. But we’re working on it!!! Future Research
