Manuscript formatting guide (http://www.nature.com/nature/authors/gta/#a5.4) “The maximum number of references, strictly enforced, is 50 for Articles and 30 for Letters. Only one publication can be listed for each number.” • Information about data citation not getting into the generic author guidelines for important publishers • Still need the culture change that data is as important as articles
me attribution? No, and that's a big difference between CC0 and our licenses. Unlike our licenses, there are no conditions contained in CC0. Just like anything in the public domain, it will be possible for others to use or adapt it however they wish without attribution. However, this does not mean that you cannot request attribution in accordance with community or professional norms and standards. https://wiki.creativecommons.org/wiki/CC0_FAQ
to assign a citation to just the subset of a larger dataset that underlies a particular graph? ▪ Results in lots of citations to lots of ever-so-slightly-different things ◦ “Cite the book, not the paragraph” == “Cite the dataset, not the cell number” ?? ◦ How do we generate citations automatically? • Common sense required here ◦ Communities need to develop their own guidance for what is “common sense”
RAG1 Core Proteins and Transib TPases The motifs are underlined and numbered from 1 to 10. Starting positions of the motifs immediately follow the corresponding protein names. Distances between the motifs are indicated in numbers of aa residues. Black circles denote conserved residues that form the RAG1/Transib catalytic DDE triad. The RAG1 proteins are as follows: RAG1_XL (GenBank GI no. 2501723, Xenopus laevis, frog), RAG1_HS (4557841, Homo sapiens,human), RAG1_GG (131826, Gallus gallus, chicken), RAG1_CL (1470117,Carcharhinus leucas, bull shark), RAG1_FR (4426834, Fugu rubripes, fugu fish). http.//doi.org/10.1371/journal.pbio.0030181 not machine actionable, not globally unique

access to, and verification of the specific data that support a claim. Citations or citation metadata should include information about provenance and fixity sufficient to facilitate verifying that the specific timeslice, version and/or granular portion of data retrieved subsequently is the same as was originally cited.
the requirements of Principle 7 if the data (and corresponding metadata) is “frozen” - i.e.: complete and finalised, not going to be modified or updated - also known as “fixity” Data isn’t that simple! - e.g.: long running data collections Proper version control can help here
◦ Timeslicing ◦ Append-only datasets • RDA Working Group on Data Citation (https://rd-alliance.org/groups/data- citation-wg.html ) ◦ Recommendations to enable data citation of evolving data (https://rd-alliance. org/system/files/documents/RDA-DC-Recommendations_150924.pdf ) ◦ Instead of static data exports or textual descriptions of data subsets, support a centric view of data sets. ◦ Proposed solution enables precise identification of the very subset and version of data used, supporting reproducibility of processes, sharing and reuse of data. ◦ The set of recommendations is undergoing evaluation in a series of pilots in different domains.
users expectations. They should not be different from citation methods for journal articles or other scholarly content, unless there is a very compelling reason to do so. Data citation methods should be generic rather than specific to a particular community.
The devil is in the details - there will be no “one size fits all” solution. “Common sense” solutions will work, but will vary across communities - important to collaborate to keep things moving in (roughly) the same directions. Don’t let the perfect be the enemy of the good!
