The RDA-WDS Data Publishing Workflows Working Group  set out to study the current data-publishing workflow landscape across disciplines and institutions. A diverse set of workflows were examined to identify common components and standard practices, including basic self-publishing services, institutional data repositories, long-term projects, curated data repositories, and joint data journal and repository arrangements. The results of this examination have been used to derive a data-publishing reference model comprising generic components. From an assessment of the current data-publishing landscape, the WG highlights important gaps and challenges to consider, especially when dealing with more complex workflows and their integration into wider community frameworks, and advocates the implementation of existing standards for repositories and all parts of the data-publishing process, and the development of new standards where necessary.
