Webinar at the NISO Virtual Conference: Dealing with the Data Deluge: Successful Techniques for Scientific Data Management

Mercè Crosas, Ph.D., Director of Data Science, Institute for Quantitative Social Science (IQSS), Harvard University

Decades of data citation research, initiatives and guidelines have been consolidated into a single set of Data Citation Principles, created by a synthesis group that represents more than 25 organizations. The principles are driven by the premise that "sound, reproducible scholarship rests upon a foundation of robust, accessible data" and therefore "data should be considered legitimate, citable products of research". The Dataverse repository, developed at Harvard University's IQSS, generates a data citation compliant with the Joint Principles, and provides data publishing workflows to guarantee a persistent linkage between journal articles and the underlying data. The Dataverse is open and free to all researchers.
