Everyday millions of people use data. They search, publish, reuse, analyse! But very often, a major difficulty for the users is finding the right data. And how to help them? It is simple: Cite the data!
This training is focused on introducing the publication “Data citation: a guide to best practice”. It is a practical guide that includes recommendations and best practices on how to cite data. It is divided in 3 parts:
- Part 1: issues in data citation, general recommendations.
- Part 2: recommendations on specific formats and other elements for data citation.
- Part 3: other information (e.g. specific differences between recommendations).
At the end you will find many useful annexes with checklists, diagrams and examples.
