Building a Culture of Research Data Citation
Workshop at eResearch Australasia 2011
Thursday 10 November 2011: 9:00-12:30
The Australian National Data Service (ANDS) is currently
developing a service called "Cite My Data" , which uses
the international DataCite infrastructure  to support the citation of
Australian research sector datasets.
The DataCite infrastructure is built on the Digital Object Identifier (DOI) system --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 .
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
- 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
