DataONE is pleased to share our latest effort in overcoming this barrier and in demonstrating data reuse with new data usage and citation metrics.
The data usage and citation metrics available on our data search and discovery platform, https://search.dataone.org, include live counts of citations, downloads, and views for each dataset in our network of Earth and environmental repositories. These metrics are interactive and can be further explored to identify articles citing the data or, in the case of downloads and views, scaled over specific time-increments to dive into details of when the data was accessed. The implementation of these data usage and citation metrics results from our collaboration as part of the Make Data Count project and compliments metrics recently implemented in Dash. The metrics are also in compliance with the COUNTER Code of Practice for Research Data.
