Abstract

Data citation remains in its infancy, although providing the citation to a journal article is a typical norm in an academic community. This study examines the need for data citation, its principles and guidelines for improving the issue. In addition, the study investigates cases that established data citation mechanism, including DataCite, Dataverse Network and Data Citation Index that define elements of data citation and provide relevant services. At the end, it explores the current state of data citation in Korea through the analysis of citations to dataset from Korean General Social Survey.
