The Publishing Data Workflows Working Group of the Research Data Alliance/World Data System (RDA/WDS) is aiming to provide an analysis of a representative range of existing and emerging workflows and standards for data publishing. That’s how we would like to establish best practices in data publishing.
Our analysis includes deposit and citation, and we aim to derive lessons learnt which could be used in a wide range of disciplines. It is the intention to enable others to build on current and emerging best practices, e.g. to get started in data publishing or to enhance existing services. Thus, we are establishing reference models and implementations for application in new workflows.

Elements identification and definition
Goals: Agreed upon standardized elements in a basic workflow, with variations to enable the sharing of best practices and lessons learnt across disicplinary, regional or insitutional boundaries; registration of elements and attendant definitions in the TeD-T tool http://smw-rda.esc.rzg.mpg.de/index.php/Main_Page
