←--1: . Does it come out clearly (in the fact sheet structure) that we want the data to be described in a "fitness for purpose" way? --Alexandra Kuhn (type: truth; paradigms: science: defence)

⇤--2: . The fitness for purpose for data is determined by the particular use purpose in each case. I do not know if it can be addressed in general from the point of view of the data any more than by explicitly defining the scope of the data. The fitness of the data for a particular purpose is always considered from the point of view of the specific need (e.g. an assessment), so it is not an intrinsic property of the data itself, but a situated property of the data in relation to the need. --Mikko Pohjola 14:20, 15 May 2008 (EEST) (type: truth; paradigms: science: attack)
----3: . Yes, you are right. But still I think one could give a hint (example, criteria) for what kind of purposes the data could be used and for which not. --Alexandra Kuhn 07:48, 16 May 2008 (EEST) (type: truth; paradigms: science: comment)
