ENVRIplus Report on Identification and Citation Service Case Studies
The report 'Inter RI data identification and citation services' from ENVRIplus provides a summary of three use cases related to data citation.
The case studies address:
1) the publication of marine biodiversity data from peer-reviewed journal to EU data infrastructure;
2) the development of a citation and usage tracking system for greenhouse gas monitoring data; and
3) facilitating quantitatively correct data usage accounting.
All three studies address the need to correctly acknowledge the efforts of data producers at multiple levels (research infrastructures, institutes and individuals), as well as to support the aggregation of statistics that map downstream usage of data products. In addition, the report summarises how identification and citation practices fit into the context of current trends in data management, discusses how data usage statistics can be used to estimate the impact of research infrastructures, and provides an update to the citation services landscape inventory first performed in past reports of the cluster.
