The ESIP/RDA Earth, Space, and Environmental Sciences Interest Group is forming a working group to examine and make recommendations around complex data citations that continue to be challanging. This working group is preceded by a community-of-practice that began this year building on discussions at the AGU Fall Meeting Data FAIR Town Hall 2020, “Why Is Citing Data Still Hard?”.
We plan to examine three use cases.
1) Citing a large number of datasets such that credit for individual datasets is assigned properly. Work on this use case has begun. https://data.agu.org/DataCitationCoP/
2) Citing notebooks and/or executable environments that results in credit for the data, software, and other relevant research products.
