Registration open for Workshop #4

What to cite: versioning and granularity of research data for effective citation

Monday 3rd December, The British Library Centre for Conservation

Deciding what constitutes a clearly-defined – and therefore citable – digital object is a key challenge in research data management. The challenge is even greater when the data in question is dynamic (in the case of longitudinal data, for example) or structurally complex (such as data comprised of multiple sub-datasets).

The fourth in the series of JISC-BL workshops will examine best-practice approaches to versioning and granularity for effective data citation, with speakers from research, publishing and both institutional and disciplinary repository backgrounds bringing their distinctive perspectives to the problem.
