    4. 4. Relatively Recent Relevant Recommendations An Overview of Data Citation Principles Synthesis Activity 4 1999 -2004 NESSTAR, Virtual Data Center Cite research data in publications; Use persistent identifiers; Facilitate direct access to data through URI’s [Ryssevik & Musgrave 2001] [Altman, et al. 2001] 2005- 2009 Dataverse Network System, TIB Data DOI Registration Include versioning, fixity, and granularity for verification; use permanent institutions; facilitate attribution [Buhneman 2006] [Altman & King 2007] 2009- DataCite; Thomson-Reuters Data Citation Index; FigShare; Data Dryad Include data citations in standard locations; index data citations in catalogs; facilitate data mining [OECD 2009] [NAS 2012] [Force 11 2013] [CODATA 2013] Example Systems Core Recommendations Key References
    5. 5. An Overview of Data Citation Principles Synthesis Activity What’s been done? 5
    6. 6. Ongoing Synthesis Group • Hosted by Force 11: http://www.force11.org/node/4432 • Met weekly through summer • Reviewed current recommendations and efforts: – Amsterdam Manifesto – Co-Data – Digital Curation Center – DataCite – Research Data Alliance • Identified core principles that are consistent across recommendation groups • Identify gaps and lack of consensus areas • Formulate a draft synthesis of: – Principles – Examples – Key references An Overview of Data Citation Principles Synthesis Activity 6
    7. 7. Sneak Preview • Large core of agreement need for citation; use of persistent identifiers; support for human and machine access; facilitation of verification, attribution • One key to successful synthesis is maintaining conceptual boundaries between data citation; data publication & data evaluation • Convergence on principles, focus on identifying key examples and reference documents • Out of scope: detailed standards, protocols, infrastructure, tools * An Overview of Data Citation Principles Synthesis Activity 7 *”A mere matter of implementation” - PHB
