RESOURCE: Data, Data Citation, and Bibliometrics

Christine Borgman (University of California, Los Angeles) recently deposited the slides from the presentation,”Data, Data Citation, and Bibliometrics” she gave recently at theĀ Taiwan Data Curation and Citation Workshop/Academia Sinica and National Taiwan University. The presentation makes the case for data citation, its best practices, its benefits for scholarship, and recommendations. Borgman quotesĀ CODATA-ICSTI Task Group on Data CitaDon Standards and PracDces, 2013: “If publicationsĀ are the stars and planets of the scientificĀ universe, data are the ā€˜dark matterā€™ ā€“ influential but largely unobserved in our mapping process.”
