The History Data Management Lifecycle (HDML) model

3. The History research Lifecycle (HRL)

3.2 HRL Learning Summary

The HRL highlights, amongst others, the following issues that are vital for researchers to observe:

  • Phases of the cycle are dependent on each other
  • Failure to identify each relevant phase may result in project failure
  • Failure to complete one or more phases may result in project failure
  • Each phase requires continual review to ensure full project completion
  • Phases may overlap with other research projects
  • Each phase effectively has its own mini lifecycle
  • Completion may be contingent on a new cycle beginning
