Report of the Workshop held in London July 1-2 2014
Member of the Research Data Alliance (RDA) working group on dynamic data citation held a 2 day workshop at the British Library on the 1st and 2nd July 2014 in order to explore a proposed citation model against a number of research community use cases. The participants mainly represented the UK Natural Environment Research Council data centres, the UK Data Archive of the Economic and Social Research Council, the British Library and DataCite. Through a number of facilitated sessions, the participants explored the issues around the proposed model and possible improvements or adaptations for their own user communities. A number of currently used pragmatic solutions were presented and explored. Finally, possible steps forward were proposed for a few of the use cases presented that most addressed the issues and range of use cases presented.
