2013), Enabling the Citation of Datasets Generated Through Public Health Research (Wellcome Trust).(
There is a growing recognition of the value of research data as part of the scholarly ecosystem; infrastructure supporting the role of data in the academic discourse is starting to become established, of which mechanisms that enable the citation of digital data objects form a fundamental part.
The Wellcome Trust, on behalf of the Public Health Research Data Forum (PHRDF), commissioned the Digital Curation Centre to produce an examination of the current mechanisms enabling the citation of datasets generated by public health research. Information was gathered through desk research and interviews with key individuals working with data citation and was then presented to a panel of experts from the field of Public Health and Epidemiology.
