ICSU-WDS Endorses Joint Declaration of Data Citation Principles
On 26 February 2014, the ICSU World Data System officially endorsed the Joint Declaration of Data Citation Principles released by the Data Citation Synthesis Group. Moreover, we would like to encourage the WDS community to do likewise through the following URL: http://www.force11.org/datacitation.
This set of guiding principles urges data be given the same importance as other research outputs when it comes to citation and the enduring scholarly record, and outlines good practices for doing so. Its development is the result of considerable collaborative effort by a number of groups, including those involving members of the WDS Scientific Committee and representatives of WDS Members.
