Data Citations Principles Worshop

May 16, 8:30am to May 17, 5:30pm

The goal of the Data Citation Principles workshop is to facilitate collaboration among leaders in publishing, data archiving and data citation research and to articulate common answers to core questions such as:  Should data that is used to support published research results be cited in peer-reviewed articles presenting those results? Should each citation include sufficient information to allow a unique dataset to be identified over time? Should citations to data appear in a consistent place within publication?
