Making Data Citable - A Web-based System for the Registration of Social and Economics Science Data

Dimitar Dimitrov, Erdal Baran, Dennis Wegener

Abstract

Reliable identification and citation of research datasets, used to answer particular research questions, is currently limited. Even with well agreed standards, classic bibliographic methods of data citation have their limits when research datasets have been used several times or are stored in different locations. In this paper, we present the web-based information system da|ra, which aims at addressing this issue. We introduce a technical architecture which allows the registration of metadata of research datasets. The system allows a user to get a DOI name for these datasets, to search for registered datasets and to resolve DOI names. Today, our system is used by 12 publication agents and includes more than 6,000 research datasets that can be searched and cited using their DOI name.
