Data occupy a key role in our information society. However, although the amount of published data continues to grow and terms such as data deluge and big data today characterize numerous (research) initiatives, much work is still needed in the direction of publishing data in order to make them effectively discoverable, available, and reusable by others. Several barriers hinder data publishing, from lack of attribution and rewards, vague citation practices, and quality issues to a rather general… 
A Survey of Exclusively Data Journals and How They Are Indexed by Scientific Databases
TLDR
This poster presents preliminary efforts to address the gap in how much exclusively data journals are indexed in scientific databases, by compiling a list of data journals that primarily accept data papers and examining their presence in four major scientific databases.
Data Papers as a New Form of Knowledge Organization in the Field of Research Data
TLDR
Part of the new ecosystem of open and data-driven science, data papers and data journals are an interesting and relevant object for the assessment and understanding of the transition of the former system of academic publishing.
An analysis of characteristics and structures embedded in data papers: a preliminary study
TLDR
This study aimed to build up a common structural framework to investigate the embedded characteristics and structures of the content of data papers by using a content analysis approach, and 26 data journals from 16 publishers were selected as subject.
Data journals: incentivizing data access and documentation within the scholarly communication system
TLDR
The unique advantages of data journals are described and the data journal landscape is examined, presenting the characteristics of 13 data journals in the fields of biology, environmental science, chemistry, medicine and health sciences.
Motivators and Deterrents for Data Description and Publication: Preliminary Results (Short Paper)
TLDR
This work addresses research data management from a disciplined yet flexible point of view, focusing on domain-specific metadata models embedded in intuitive tools, to make it easier for researchers to publish their datasets.
Theory and practice of data citation
  • G. Silvello
  • Computer Science
    J. Assoc. Inf. Sci. Technol.
  • 2018
TLDR
This paper aims to describe the lay of the land for data citation, both from the theoretical (the why and what) and the practical (the how) angle.
On research data publishing
TLDR
This work states that data publishing is a multifaceted process that can occur at different stages of the scientific process, involves different levels of openness and controlled sharing and concerns data products at various levels of manipulation and maturity.
An analysis of data paper templates and guidelines: types of contextual information described by data journals
TLDR
It is implied that data journals should provide a more standardized set of data paper components to inform reusers of relevant contextual information in a consistent manner.
Are Scientific Data Repositories Coping with Research Data Publishing?
TLDR
This study analyses the solutions offered by generalist scientific data repositories, i.e., repositories supporting the deposition of any type of research data, and emerges that these repositories implement well consolidated practices and pragmatic solutions for literature repositories.
Data bibliometrics: metrics before norms
TLDR
The paper finds that the diversity of data and its citation precludes the drawing of any simple conclusions about how to measure the impact of data, and an over emphasis on metrics before norms of behaviour have become established may adversely affect the data ecosystem.

Data Sharing by Scientists: Practices and Perceptions
TLDR
Large scale programs, such as the NSF-sponsored DataNET will both bring attention and resources to the issue and make it easier for scientists to apply sound data management principles.
An Introduction to the Dataverse Network as an Infrastructure for Data Sharing
TLDR
The author introduces a set of integrated developments in Web application software, networking, data citation standards, and statistical methods designed to increase scholarly recognition for data contributions to benefit both the scientific community and the sometimes apparently contradictory goals of individual researchers.
The Anatomy of a Data Citation: Discovery, Reuse, and Credit
TLDR
Citations for data must be promoted as an essential component of data publication, sharing, and reuse and librarians and information professionals are well-positioned and should persist in advancing data citation as a normative practice across domains.
Making Data a First Class Scientific Output: Data Citation and Publication by NERC's Environmental Data Centres
TLDR
A crucial part of science is the notion of reproducibility: if a dataset is used to draw important conclusions, and then the dataset changes, those conclusions can no longer be re-validated by someone else.

TLDR
The CODATA-ICSTI Task Group examines a number of key issues related to data identification, attribution, citation, and linking, including the need to develop standards and data citation practices.
Citation and Peer Review of Data: Moving Towards Formal Data Publication
This paper discusses many of the issues associated with formally publishing data in academia, focusing primarily on the structures that need to be put in place for peer review and formal citation of
The Availability of Research Data Declines Rapidly with Article Age
Practices, Trends, and Recommendations in Technical Appendix Usage for Selected Data-Intensive Disciplines
TLDR
There is a need to establish a new publishing paradigm to cope with the deluge of data artifacts produced by data-intensive science, many of which are vital to data re-use and verification of published scientific conclusions.
Managing scientific data as public assets: Data sharing practices and policies among full‐time government employees
TLDR
It is argued further that a complete measure of access should also consider the normative decisions to collect (or not) particular data, and that legislators should also remove structural barriers to interoperability by funding technical infrastructure according to issue clusters rather than administrative programs.
