Journals are increasingly instituting data sharing policies to encourage replication and verification of research results. Workflows that support citing and archiving data alongside the publication of peer-reviewed articles can assist researchers in receiving scholarly acknowledgement for data products and ensure data are properly preserved. In this poster, we will summarize a project sponsored by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation and the Inter-university Consortium for Political and Social Research (ICPSR) to implement a prototype data citation workflow within the State Politics and Policy Quarterly (SPPQ) journal publication workflow. The project developed a human-driven workflow to archive, share, and link underlying replication data to their associated scholarly publications. Through the development of the workflow, the project team examined some of the challenges and opportunities of integrating data archiving and sharing into existing publishing systems. This poster will present the prototype workflow and key lessons learned such as the importance of relationships and the challenge of working with multiple system.
