BRDI Report Release - Developing Data Attribution and Citation Practices and Standards
Developing Data Attribution and Citation Practices and Standards, which explored how to assign credit for data (attribution) and how to reference data (citation) in ways that others can identify, discover, and retrieve them. Among the questions explored were: what approaches are generic across disciplines and what practices are field-specific;
what are the major scientific, technical, institutional, financial, legal, and socio-cultural issues that need to be considered;
and what are some of the options for the successful development and implementation of data citation practices and standards?
