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?

  1. Implement policies that advise researchers to deposit data to a stable repository that gives a persistent, citable identifier for the dataset
  2. Guide researchers to cite their own data or other data related to their article in their references list
  3. 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.
