Case Statement: 
WGs Maintaining deliverables (maintenance group)
 

Please note that the Data Citation WG has delivered its outputs and is now primarily focusing on supporting adoption by maintaining these outputs, assisting institutions in implementing the recommendations and sharing the lessons learned.

 

The RDA Working Group on Data Citation (WG-DC) aims is bringing together a group of experts to discuss the issues, requirements, advantages and shortcomings of existing approaches for efficiently citing subsets of data. The WG-DC focuses on a narrow field where we can contribute significantly and provide prototypes and reference implementations.

The final recommendations of the WGDC are available at https://rd-alliance.org/system/files/documents/RDA-DC-Recommendations_151020.pdf (2-page flyer), with a slightly more extensive report being available at http://www.ieee-tcdl.org/Bulletin/v12n1/papers/IEEE-TCDL-DC-2016_paper_1.pdf (Bulletin of the IEEE Technical Committee on Digital Libraries, 12:1, 2016).

 

The WGDC has now moved on into an adoption phase, supporting numerous data centers in implementing these recommendations and collecting feedback and lessons learned on the way. Please follow the discussion forum and wiki for updates on the status of these pilots. We are running a series of webinars where adopters present their implementations of the recommendations and their experiences in setting up the according services. Details on these webinars, recordings, slides and supporting materials are available from the WGDC Webinar page at

https://www.rd-alliance.org/group/data-citation-wg/webconference/webconference-data-citation-wg.html

If you are interested in adopting these recommendations, would like to present you rimplementation of the recommendations, or if you have any questions concenring their interpretation, please let us know.

Data citation metrics question

Dear data citation aficionados

There was a question going around our water group about DOIs vs uris for citation. Clearly many data journals strongly recommend DOIs but does anyone know if they are mandatory or just recommended?

And for an organisation capable of maintaining persistent identifiers, do they hold any intrinsic benefits over DOIs, e.g. in relation to the gathering of statistics around citations, e.g. h-index?

It seems crossref / datacite / scholix support other forms:
