Description: The talk will introduce the six foundational principles for versioning of datasets: Revision, Release, Granularity, Manifestation, Provenance, and Citation. The work of this group is derived from the analysis of 39 use cases and current practices of data versioning across 33 organisations, and using the Functional Requirements for Bibliographic Records (FRBR) as a conceptual framework. The six principles provide a high-level framework for researchers in guiding a consistent practice of data versioning. It will also serve to guide data centres or data providers when setting up their own data revision and version protocols and procedures, as well as systematic identification of their data products.

We appreciate your help and look forward to seeing you at the event.
