"The Location of the Citation: Changing Practices in How Publications Cite Original Data in the Dryad Digital Repository"

Posted in Data Curation, Open Data, and Research Data Management, Publishing, Scholarly Journals on October 31st, 2016 by Charles W. Bailey, Jr.

Christine Mayo, Todd J. Vision, and Elizabeth A. Hull have published "The Location of the Citation: Changing Practices in How Publications Cite Original Data in the Dryad Digital Repository" in the International Journal of Digital Curation.

Here's an excerpt:

While stakeholders in scholarly communication generally agree on the importance of data citation, there is not consensus on where those citations should be placed within the publication – particularly when the publication is citing original data. Recently, CrossRef and the Digital Curation Center (DCC) have recommended as a best practice that original data citations appear in the works cited sections of the article. In some fields, such as the life sciences, this contrasts with the common practice of only listing data identifier(s) within the article body (intratextually). We inquired whether data citation practice has been changing in light of the guidance from CrossRef and the DCC. We examined data citation practices from 2011 to 2014 in a corpus of 1,125 articles associated with original data in the Dryad Digital Repository. The percentage of articles that include no reference to the original data has declined each year, from 31% in 2011 to 15% in 2014. The percentage of articles that include data identifiers intratextually has grown from 69% to 83%, while the percentage that cite data in the works cited section has grown from 5% to 8%. If the proportions continue to grow at the current rate of 19-20% annually, the proportion of articles with data citations in the works cited section will not exceed 90% until 2030.

Research Data Services in Europe’s Academic Research Libraries

Posted in Data Curation, Open Data, and Research Data Management, Research Libraries on October 27th, 2016 by Charles W. Bailey, Jr.

LIBER has released Research Data Services in Europe's Academic Research Libraries by Carol Tenopir et al.

Here's an excerpt from the announcement:

Almost all of Europe's academic research libraries are working collaboratively, within and outside of their institutions, to help ensure that the scientific data of today is curated properly, so it can be accessed, shared and reused by future generations. . . .

The survey—which reflects answers from a representative sample of research libraries in 22 countries across Europe—also revealed that:

  • Libraries are currently offering more consultative-type RDS services (eg. how to find information on Data Management Plans, metadata standards, or data citation practices) than technological services (eg. own storage solutions);
  • Less than half of libraries say their institutions currently have policies relating to RDS;
  • Two-thirds of library directors express strongly that libraries need to offer RDS to remain relevant.
