Scalable Dynamic Data Citation Methodology

By Andreas Rauber

The aim of the Dynamic Data Citation Working Group was to devise a simple, scalable mechanism that allows the precise, machine-actionable identification of arbitrary sub selections of data at a given point in time irrespective of any subsequent addition, deletion or modification. The approach recommended by the Working Group relies on dynamic resolution of a data citation via a time-stamped query also known as dynamic data citation. It is based on time-stamped and versioned source data and time-stamped queries utilized for retrieving the desired dataset at the specific time in the appropriate version.
