Contributing and Consuming Data Metrics to Make Your Data Count

All pre-conference workshops required separate registration. That registration process is now CLOSED and this workshop is full.  

Make Data Count (https://www.makedatacount.org) is a project set out to elevate research data as a first class scholarly output. In the last year, DataCite, California Digital Library, and DataONE have developed an approach for repositories to process and display comparable, standardized data-level-metrics (DLMs). In addition, Make Data Count incorporates the data citations contributed through Scholix (www.scholix.org). In this session we will engage research stakeholders, specifically repositories and publishers, in a "How-To" make your data count. This will involve:

  • Repositories: how to standardize data usage metrics according to the COUNTER code of practice for research data
  • Repositories: how to display standardized data usage metrics and data citations at the repository level
  • Repositories: how to submit to a DataCite open public hub for data usage and citation metrics
  • Repositories: how to submit data citations properly in metadata
  • Publishers: why and how to tag and submit data citations to Crossref
  • Publishers: how to consume data citations through Event Data

Our intentions for this session are to engage the community on data level metrics and and equip those who join us to both adopt and promote DLMs.

Please note that this workshop will be held at Hôtel Delta Montréal's Vivaldi Room
