Publishers: Make Your Data Citations Count!
From: Make Data Count
How as a publisher, can you support open research data and incentivize researchers to think about data like articles?
- Implement policies that advise researchers to deposit data to a stable repository that gives a persistent, citable identifier for the dataset
- Guide researchers to cite their own data or other data related to their article in their references list
- Acknowledge data citations in the article, data availability statement, and/or reference list, tag it as a data citation, and send this in XML to Crossref via the references list or in the relationships type. Crossref has put together a simple guide here.
