  • 6. #1Few policies request or require data citation
  • 7. We reviewed policies of various stakeholders within the environmental sciences, looking for evidence of data citation policies and attribution suggestions. Policies in our sample that mention data citation:Journal policies rarely included useful best practices. Nicholas Weber, Data citation in the wild IDCC 2010 poster.

  • 8. #2No consistent practice
  • 9. We reviewed 500 articles in six major evolution and ecologyjournals for evidence of data citation: Sarah Judson, Data citation in the wild IDCC 2010 poster.

  • 13. In 2009, there were 116 articles citing ORNL DAAC data.Finding these articles took 70-80 hours of workacross  at  least  12  search  engines,  abstract  servers,  cita3on  databases,  and  full-­‐text  archives,  all  chosen  from  a  deep  understanding  of  this  specific  research  domainthen  the  full  text  of  the  hits  were  manually  reviewed.
