Project Description/Abstract

Questions to Consider

  1. How do data citation practices vary across disciplines (biology, ecology, earth sciences, etc.)?
  2. What are barriers to citation of raw data hosted online? Are there ways of getting around these barriers?
  3. How much of the data cited is open access?
  4. Are the datasets represented by DOIs, URIs or other persistent identifiers?
  5. Are the datasets integrated with citation software like BibTeX or use RIS?

Instructions for Adding Resources

  1. Email with the full citation (including DOI or URI if available). Or:
  2. Join OpenWetWare
  3. Edit the page by adding the citation using the <biblio> or <cite> tags as per this page:
  4. You can reference DOIs using OpenWetware as per the following: Referencing a DOI within OWW
  5. Or if there are no reference numbers, just copy and paste the link/citation.
  6. Make sure that the citation is in the appropriate category: Projects for project websites related to data citation, Discussion for whitepapers or presentations related to data citation, Editorials for opinion pieces about data citation, Academic Papers for articles/papers related to data citation, Interesting Findings for any neat find that could be relevant for future reference and/or discussion sections of pending manuscripts.

Interesting Findings

Anecdotal comment on difficulty of data reuse in treebase: Marshall, David. Cryptic Failure of Partitioned Bayesian Phylogenetic Analyses: Lost in the Land of Long Trees. SysBio. 2010. 59(1):108-117. doi:10.1093/sysbio/syp080

  • Direct Quote: "I conducted an informal survey of Internet-accessible files using Google Scholar ( and a keyword set consisting of “partition,” “MrBayes,” “mitochondrial,” “codon,” “phylogeography,” and “TreeBASE.” The latter 2 terms were intended to bias the sample toward studies with larger numbers of taxa and easily accessed data sets. I examined the first 24 studies that fit these criteria; many proved unusable here because the data sets were not accessible, the character sets were not clearly specified in the TreeBASE files (, or the partitioning details (e.g., parameter linking) were not entirely specified."
  • Valerie Enriquez 15:48, 25 June 2010 (EDT): In search for articles citing data from ORNL DAAC, found this article about data citation policy mentioning ORNL DAAC and their policy.

  • Direct quote: "NASA's Distributed Active Archive Center (DAAC) managed the archival and distribution of NASA data through the Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL). Their data citation policy requested that authors include a bibliographic citation to ORNL DAAC rather than to the individual scientists who provided the data.2 The DAAC also included a policy for data producers on quality control for data dissemination (e.g., metadata, defined parameters, and consistency). The constraints on data producers were more detailed than for data users. NASA expected peer review rules to govern the actions of the researchers and accepted negotiated collective-choice arrangements."
  • Valerie Enriquez 11:19, 28 June 2010 (EDT): As per email from Margaret Henty, I have added links to the ANDS (Australian National Data Service) project and DataCite.
  • Valerie Enriquez 10:12, 2 July 2010 (EDT): As per email from Monica Duke, have added more resources including articles and blog entries about the Semantic Web and a white paper on citation, location, preservation and identification recommendations. The pieces on the Semantic Web should prove insightful for my own project, seeing as how there needs to be a greater link between the datasets saved in repositories and the articles that cite them.
