When writing a position statement or article an author would never leave out the references to other sources or writers from whom information has been included. Data should be cited in just the same way. Data citation can help by enabling easy reuse and verification of data, allowing the impact of data to be tracked and creating a scholarly structure that recognises and rewards data producers.
DataCite (www.datacite.org) is a leading global membership organization offering reliable persistent data identification and engaging with stakeholders including researchers, scholars, data centers, libraries, publishers, and funders through advocacy, guidance and services.
The 2013 DataCite Summer Meeting is being held in conjunction with the RDA 2nd Plenary Meeting at the National Academy of Sciences in Washington, DC on Thursday, 19 September 2013 from 13:00 and ending on Friday, 20 September 2013 at 12:30.
The meeting targets researchers, funders, policy makers, professionals from research organisations, data infrastructure providers, data centres, publishers. Everyone who wants to learn more about the latest developments helping to integrate data into the record of science.
Dr. Salvatore Mele, CERN will give the opening keynote while Jan Brase, Executive Officer, DataCite will present integration of data citation in the global research infrastructure. Participants will hear from a series of speakers on the challenges and solutions for data citation as well as learning about the Amsterdam Manifesto, and recent developments at the CODATA task group on Data Citation.
