Workshop: Building a Culture of Research Data Citation

Building a Culture of Research Data Citation

Workshop at eResearch Australasia 2011

Thursday 10 November 2011: 9:00-12:30

http://conference.eresearch.edu.au/workshops/#8

The Australian National Data Service (ANDS) is currently developing a service called "Cite My Data" [1], which uses the international DataCite infrastructure [2] to support the citation of Australian research sector datasets.  The DataCite infrastructure is built on the Digital Object Identifier (DOI) system [3]--widely used for citation and tracking of scholarly publications.  The ANDS Cite My Data service will allow Australian research data publishers and users to uniquely identify research data and cite data from publications or other datasets [4].

ANDS is hosting a workshop at the eResearch Australasia 2011 conference based around data citation and the Cite My Data service. The workshop is designed for data publishers and users in the research sector who need to gain a deeper understanding of the issues and technologies around data citation and the ways data citation can be supported at their organizations.

Highlights of the workshop include:

- An overview of the DataCite initiative from Jan Brase, Managing Agent of DataCite

- An overview of ANDS services related to data citation and tracking

- A practical look at the ANDS Cite My Data service

- Experience reports from institutions currently implementing data citation policies

- Opportunity for question and answers with key ANDS and DataCite representatives

The workshop will be held on Thursday 10 November 2011 (during the conference workshop days) from 9:00-12:30. Conference registration is available at http://conference.eresearch.edu.au/registration/.
