Introduction to ANDS What is data citation? Do DOIs = data citation? Who cares about data citation? How ready is your institution for data citation? 1 Welcome! Image:
WHAT’S NEW? 2 ands.org.au
5 20th century data citation
6 PatL; Ross. (2011?, 2012? N.D.): Qld films Griffith. Lots of Misc Files Red USB, bottom RH drawer, my office. Early 21stC data citation Pat Laughren, Ross Woodrow (2011) Queensland Films : from Talkies to Television. Griffith Film School, Griffith University. 8E BD
7 Woodrow, Ross Laughren, Patrick ( 2011 ): Queensland Films : from Talkies to Television. Griffith Film School, Griffith University.
9 DOIs for data Woodrow, Ross Laughren, Patrick ( 2011 ): Queensland Films : from Talkies to Television. Griffith Film School, Griffith University.
10 Digital Object Identifiers 101 Globally unique identifier; Easy and persistent access to research data (and other resource types); DOIs are “minted” and are “resolvable”; Minting implies a long term commitment to maintain the resource; DOIs support automated tracking of reuse aka data citation metrics.
11 DOIs and ANDS DOI Styles doi: /PANGAEA /13/50BBFCFE08A12 ANDS Cite My Data Service -> DataCite registration agency Minimum set of metadata required to mint a DOI Identifier, Creator, Title, Publisher, Publication Year ANDS DOIs are for research data, software, workflows
Funders & Government(s) Publishers Researchers Citation tracking products and services ANDS 12 Who cares about data citation? image:
13 the NSF now allows for citable data (ie with a DOI) to be listed as an outcome of research, like a journal article. This is done in what is called a "biosketch" - basically a summary of your work, an a key part of the granting process. Funders
14 Early indications in Australia …
15 Governments care… “The Code” What will the next revision say about data?
16 Publishers care
17 nature. com/scientificdata / Scientific Data now calling for submissions for launch in May 2014.
18 Researchers care
19 The citation benefit intensified over time... ...with publications from 2004 and 2005 cited 30 per cent more often if their data was freely available. Every 100 papers with open data prompted 150 "data reuse papers" within five years Original authors tended to use their data for only two years, but others re-used it for up to six years. Piwowar HA, Vision TJ. (2013) Data reuse and the open data citation advantage. PeerJ 1:e175 Why ? for related publications

21 Thomson Reuters recommends citing this resource as: Global Soil Data Task (2000): GLOBAL GRIDDED SURFACES OF SELECTED SOIL CHARACTERISTICS (IGBP-DIS). Version 9.0. Oak Ridge National Laboratory Distributed Active Archive Center for Biogeochemical Dynamics.

ANDS Cares 24
25 To summarise … » Data citation is becoming accepted scholarly practice » Traditional journals are embracing data citation; Many new journals assume data citation » Research funding will have more emphasis on data access + reuse = citation » Scholarly metrics will eventually include citations to data » altmetrics will become more important: reach and impact & early identification of seminal datasets » DOIs – best practice for persistent access to data products
26 What to do? the rewards … Ensure data is discoverable, reusable, citable and trackable Refer to the “readiness checklist” Describe data (well) Assign open licensing where possible (eg CC-BY) Preferably, assign a DOI to data Publish data (with descriptions) Encourage researchers to cite their own data in their publications Encourage researchers to cite data from other sources they’ve reused Track reuse through altmetrics and indexing products
Do we have a metadata catalogue? Do we have a store of publicly available data? Do our researchers regularly archive data? Are our researchers interested in data citation? Do our policy makers support data citation? Are our datasets stable? Do we have access to a developer to implement the tools?
