Data Citation, Peer Review and Provenance

Tim Finin, 12:02pm 8 February 2011

In today’s ebiquity meeting, Curt Tilmes showed an interesting figure showing the how often a particular dataset (MODIS snow cover data) was mentioned in a paper vs. how often it was formally cited. It’s a good example of how far we still need to go w.r.t. formally capturing the provenance of data and information derived from it.

Data Citation and Peer Review

The figure is from:

Parsons, Mark A.; Duerr, Ruth; Minster, Jean-Bernard. Data Citation and Peer Review. Eos, Transactions American Geophysical Union, Volume 91, Issue 34, p. 297-298. 2010.
