CrossRef Joins DataCite and STM Statement on Linkability and Citability of Research Data
In June 2012, DataCite and the International Association of STM Publishers (STM) issued a joint statement on the Linkability and Citability of Research Data. CrossRef is pleased to join and support this statement and the best practices for data it recommends.
Specifically, CrossRef encourages publishers to use DataCite DOIs to link to data sets referenced in the published literature, and encourages authors of research papers to use CrossRef DOIs to link from data deposited in DataCite repositories to the published articles that draw on that data. CrossRef and DataCite are also collaborating on joint services, such as DOI Content Negotiation, to enable publishers and data repositories to automatically interlink their content.
