Pre-Meeting Workshop: Data Citation Implementation Guidelines

This talk presents a set of detailed technical recommendations for operationalizing the Joint Declaration of Data Citation Principles (JDDCP) - the most widely agreed set of principle-based recommendations for direct scholarly data citation. 

We will provide initial recommendations on identifier schemes, identifier resolution behavior, required metadata elements, and best practices for realizing programmatic machine actionability of cited data. 

We hope that these recommendations along with the new NISO JATS document schema revision, developed in parallel, will help accelerate the wide adoption of data citation in  scholarly literature. We believe their adoption will enable open data transparency for validation, reuse and extension of scientific results; and will significantly counteract the problem of false positives in the literature.
