2013 DataCite Summer Meeting - Update on Force 11 and the Amsterdam manifesto. Updated title: updated title: Declaration of Data Citation Principles (Merce Crosas - Harvard University)

  1. 1. DECLARATION OF DATA CITATION PRINCIPLES AMSTERDAM MANIFESTO Mercè Crosas Director of Data Science, IQSS, Harvard University
  2. 2. A little history • Beyond the PDF in Amsterdam, March 2013, organized by Force11 • 1K Challenge: What would you do to change scholarly communication?
  3. 3. Amsterdam Manifesto: A simple set of Data Citation Principles “We wish to promote best practices in data citation to facilitate access to data sets and to enable attribution and reward for those who publish data. Through formal data citation, the contributions to science by those that share their data will be recognized and potentially rewarded. To that end, we propose that:...” Mercè Crosas, Todd Carpenter, David Shotton and Christine Borgman

  7. 7. Data Citation Synthesis Group • 36 members, ~ 20 organizations • Weekly meetings for 3 months, led by Force 11 • Comparison of 4 sets of principles: – Amsterdam Manifesto – CoData Data Citation Principles – DataCite Data Citation Principles – Digital Data Center Data Citation Principles • Merge them to create a synthesis set of principles - high level and simple http://www.force11.org/node/4381
  8. 8. THE CONSENSUS: 8 PRINCIPLES
  9. 9. 1. IMPORTANCE Data should be considered legitimate, citable products of research. Data citations should be accorded the same importance in the scholarly record as citations of other research objects, such as publications.
  10. 10. 2. CREDIT AND ATTRIBUTION Data citations should facilitate giving scholarly credit and normative and legal attribution to all contributors to the data, recognizing that a single style or mechanism of attribution may not be applicable to all data.
  11. 11. 3. EVIDENCE Where a specific claim rests upon data, the corresponding data citation should be provided.
  12. 12. 4. UNIQUE IDENTIFIERS A data citation should include a persistent method for identification that is machine actionable, globally unique, and widely used by a community.
  13. 13. 5. ACCESS Data citations should facilitate access to the data themselves and to such associated metadata, documentation, and other materials, as are necessary for both humans and machines to make informed use of the referenced data.
  14. 14. 6. PERSISTENCE Metadata describing the data, and unique identifiers should persist, even beyond the lifespan of the data they describe.
  15. 15. 7. VERSIONING AND GRANULARITY Data citations should facilitate identification and access to different versions and/or subsets of data. Citations should include sufficient detail to verifiably link the citing work to the portion and version of data cited.
  16. 16. 8. INTEROPERABILITY AND FLEXIBILITY Data citation methods should be sufficiently flexible to accommodate the variant practices among communities but should not differ so much that they compromise interoperability of data citation practices across communities.
  17. 17. WHAT NEXT
  18. 18. Review Process • Now to End of October: – Draft document by synthesis group: • Preamble • Principles (“as is”) • Supplementary materials (example + glossary + references) • November – January: – Open document to wider review (publishers, data repositories, libraries, funders, gov agencies, …)
  19. 19. Dissemination Plan • Beginning January: – Integrate comments from stakeholders/community • Mid January: – Publish final Principles in web site – Initiate endorsement requests – Press releases, dissemination to scholars within institutions, social media, media kit – Transition to other groups next steps after Declaration is endorsed widely
