Meeting title WGDC - Working Group on Dynamic Data Citation - Adoption Meeting

Please give a short introduction describing the activities and the scope of the group

The RDA Working Group on Data Citation (WG-DC) aims to bring 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 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.

Please provide additional links to informative material related to your group i.e. group page, Case statement, working documents etc

The final recommendations of the WGDC are available at https://rd-alliance.org/system/files/documents/RDA-DC-Recommendations_15..., with a slightly more extensive report being available (currently in draft version) at https://www.rd-alliance.org/rda-wgdc-recommendations-extended-descriptio....
