Webinar: Conversations about Data Citation

Data citation and data sharing have entered what might be called the “next phase” in scholarly communication. Funders expect and even require these behaviors. Publishers are increasingly providing support for data citation, data references, and data sharing. Is all the work done? Data curators, librarians, and other information professionals continue to face many questions from researchers: When do I get a DOI? Why should I share my research data? Will you do this for me? Join Joan Starr, EZID Service Manager, Matt Mayernik, Research Data Services Specialist with NCAR, and Mary Linn Bergstrom, Data Services Librarian at UC San Diego, for conversations about these and other issues. We hope you come ready to get involved in the discussion.
