Special Interest Group on Data Citation (SIGDC) Formed

We are pleased to announce the creation of a new Special Interest Group on Data Citation (SIGDC) to promote awareness of data-related research and scholarship through data citation. The group is co-chaired by Mary Vardigan and Michael Witt.

Citing data supports the discovery and reuse of data, leading to better science through the validation of results. It also recognizes data as an essential part of the scientific record.  SIGDC will share information about its work through the IASSIST list, the IQ, the IASSIST blog, and sessions at the IASSIST conference as well as other venues and meetings.

More information can be found on the SIGDC website:
