3. Data citation

Just as researchers routinely provide a bibliographic reference to sources such as journal articles, reports and conference papers, data citation is the practice of providing reference to datasets. Citing data like other sources, also:

  • acknowledges the author or creator
  • increases its validity and significance within the scholarly communications cycle
  • enables counting and tracking (in a similar manner to journal articles) to measure impact.

Making your project's data openly available may lead to an increased citation rate for your publications.

Aim to include data citation in your research practice. Resources to help:
