EG4 DCIP: Repository Early Adopters

June 22 Workshop Info

Group Description

This group is working with data repositories on best practices that repositories can follow to support data citation:

  • machine-readable landing pages
  • use of persistent identifiers (in collaboration with the Identifiers Expert Group)
  • support of community metadata standards


Develop a set of recommendations and minimal requirements for repositories to implement a landing page with metadata supporting data citation.


The group has started to have biweekly calls, and will meet in person at the end of June. 

Deliverables and Timeline

  • by the end of June: draft recommendations for repositories to support data citation
  • by the end of August: final recommendations for repositories to support data citation
