Implementing the Data Citation Recommendations

21 Nov 2022
Groups audience: 

Dear all,
as we have seen a few new members join the WG over the past few weeks I
would like to use this email to
- welcome the new members!
- inform all of you that we've submitted a request to hold a session
at the next RDA Plenary (March 21-23 in Gothenburg), which I hope
will be granted to get all of us together again to discuss the
recommendations, new adoptions, questions and challenges identified,
and any support needed.
With this in mind I'd like to invite anybody who has been / is currently
/ is planning to implement the recommendations in their infrastructure,
or who has identified any challenges, questions, etc. to let us know,
either Mark and myself personally, or via the mailinglist, so that we
can pick these up.
Also, if you would like to present something at the next plenary, or add
an item to the agenda, please let us know! We would also like to
continue the Webinar series where we share specific adoption cases,
pilots, etc. Again, let us know if you would like to share yours.
Apart from that, I'd also like to point to the current set of
information material available on the recommendations, specifically:
- The WGDC Recommendations in the short form of a 2-page flyer:
- An extended Description of Recommendations is available at:
Bulletin of the IEEE Technical Committee on Digital Libraries,
12:1, 2016.
- A comprehensive review of the recommendations, the wide range of
reference implementations as well as a survey of all adoptions
reported over the years has recently been published in
Rauber, A., Gößwein, B., Zwölf, C. M., Schubert, C., Wörister, F.,
Duncan, J., … Parsons, M. A. (2021). Precisely and Persistently
Identifying and Citing Arbitrary Subsets of Dynamic Data.
Harvard Data Science Review, 3(4).
- The recordings of our Webinar series, plus slide decks and supporting
papers by adopters presenting their experience in implementing the
recommendations are collected at the RDA WGDC webinar page at
Looking forward to hearing from you!
best regards,
