Research: Cite Data

Cite Data

 

Data citations reward you for the data you create and give credit to the creators of datasets you use.

A standard data citation looks like this:

data citation

 

A data citation must have the following components:

  •    Author or data publisher
  •    Digital object identifier
  •    Version information
 

Please note the following:

  • DataCite will create a digital object identifier (DOI) for your research data if you sign up as a member of DataCite. You may have seen a DOI while reading an article, as all articles published online have one. (Here are some DOI examples.) A DOI will help you track the usage and impact of your data.
  •  
  • The Joint Declaration of Data Citation Principles has established eight principles to guide the development of data citations, including: importance, credit and attribution, evidence, unique identification, access, persistence, specificity and verifiability, and interoperability and flexibility.
