Data Citation

An interesting topic to emerge from the Creative Commons workshop today was Data Citation. While finished papers are important for researchers, the data they collect is also of value. This creates some difficult logistical issues. Some scientific instruments will generate millions of sets of data per second and issuing unique IDs for each set would be difficult. There will be a Building a culture of research data citation Workshop at the.eResearch Australasia 2011 Conference in November 2011.
