Abstract

A poster describing data citation and publication and how to get credit for it. Why should I publish and cite data? It’s good for science: Allows research to be reproduced and verified. Allows data to be found and understood by other researchers. Encourages collaboration and cross-disciplinary work. Maintains the scientific record. It’s good for researchers: Provides attribution and credit for the hard work of creating a dataset. Makes it easier to build in good data management practices. Demonstrates the quality and usefulness of the data (especially for researchers outside the immediate field). Captures information about the data’s impact. It’s good for funders: Reduces money and effort needed to recreate important datasets. Reassures funders that the data resulting from their funding is useful and archived safely. Captures information about the funder’s impact. It’s good for data repositories: Encourages researchers to deposit data where it can be archived and curated. Papers linked to the data are an excellent source of metadata. Captures information about the repository’s impact.
