Draft Declaration of Data Citation Principles released for public comment
The members of Force 11 (the Future of Research Communications and e-Scholarship) have been working on data citation principles and guidelines and they internationally came together to forge a synthesis set of data citation principles. The working group has completed its work and announced the release of a Draft Declaration of Data Citation Principles for public comment.
The draft can be found at: http://www.force11.org/datacitation
The public comment period will run through the end of this December, at which point feedback will be incorporated and a released version of the declaration generated and promulgated widely. Public endorsement of the principles will be sought at that time.
