LIBER Webinar: A Data Citation Roadmap for Scholarly Data Repositories

Posted: 25-04-2017

Join us on 15 May at 1500 CET for a LIBER Webinar looking at a practical roadmap to help scholarly data repositories implement data citation in accordance with the Joint Declaration of Data Citation Principles.

The roadmap makes 11 specific recommendations, grouped into three phases of implementation:

  1. Required steps needed to support the Joint Declaration of Data Citation Principles (a synopsis and harmonisation of the recommendations of major science policy bodies);
  2. Recommended steps that facilitate article/data publication workflows;
  3. Optional steps that further improve data citation support provided by data repositories.

It was developed by the Repositories Early Adopters Expert Group, part of the Data Citation Implementation Pilot project which, in turn, was an initiative of and the NIH BioCADDIE (2016) program.
