    Data Citations Principles Worshop

    Mon - Tue, May 16 to May 17, 8:30am - 5:30pm

Should each citation include sufficient information to allow a unique dataset to be identified over time? Should citations to data appear in a consistent place within publication? Should citations to data be indexable so that they can be used for linkage...
