Data Publication

IEDA promotes research data sets as legitimate, internationally-recognized citable contributions to the scientific record. IEDA offers a Data Publication Service that registers scientific data in the DOI® system, making data sets citable as publications with attribution to their investigators as authors. IEDA is a publication agent through the DataCite consortium.

How to Cite Data

A dataset can be cited using its DOI. The DataCite recommendation is to use the format:

  • Creator (PublicationYear): Title. Publisher. Identifier. Data Accessed.

To create a link to a data set using its DOI, simply add the DOI to the base URL of http://dx.doi.org/.

For example, a data set registered by IEDA in the DOI system is the P-wave velocity structure from a study of Axial Seamount by Arnulf et al.

  • Its data DOI is 10.1594/IEDA/324420.
  • Its citation would be:

Arnulf, Adrien, et al., (2018): Three-dimensional P-wave velocity structure of Axial volcano on the Juan de Fuca ridge. Interdisciplinary Earth Data Alliance (IEDA). http://dx.doi.org/10.1594/IEDA/324420. Accessed on 29 March 2018.
