Data Citation Implementation
The Data Citation Implementation Project, a pilot of the NIH BD2K bioCADDIE, provides authoritative guidance and support on all aspects of data citation. Among other goals, it is set to create a joint publisher-curated list of appropriate data deposition repositories in the life sciences, developed in collaboration with FAIRsharing.
