By properly citing data in research publications, it not only acknowledges sources, it also makes it easier for others to discover, (re-)use, and re-purpose the data. Data citation is quickly becoming best practice across all disciplines. This new video tutorial shows data users how to retrieve citation information directly from UK Data Service resources. Although this video particularly focuses on how-to-cite datasets from the UK Data Service, it covers general principles of data citation, including what it is and why it is important.
In addition to the UK Data Service website guidance, other data centers and repositories also provide similar data citation guidance, including the Inter-university Consortium for Political and Social Research (ICPSR).
