New Collaborations: DataCite Records Will Now Be Added to Data Citation Index From Thomson Reuters
Announced this morning.
From a Joint Announcement:
The [DataCite/Thomson Reuters] collaboration will promote the discovery of research data sets through the Data Citation Index.
This collaboration will connect the Data Citation Index to high quality research data from repositories worldwide that work with DataCite.
As part of the Web of Science inclusion within the Data Citation Index will also further DataCite’s mission of increasing acceptance of research data as citable contributions to the scholarly record.
We are excited to be working with Thomson Reuters to enhance the ways that people can find and use data,” said Adam Farquhar, president of DataCite. “With global research output rapidly increasing and citable datasets becoming legitimate contributions to the scholarly record, it is imperative that researchers around the globe can efficiently access, cite and measure data-intensive research.”
