Principios DC1 sobre Datos de Investigación

Data Citation Synthesis Group: Joint Declaration of Data Citation Principles. Martone M. (ed.) San Diego CA: FORCE11; 2014

Cualquier investigación sólida y reproducible descansa sobre una base de datos sólidos y accesibles. Para que esto sea así tanto en la práctica como en la teoría, los datos deben tener la debida importancia en la práctica de la erudición y estar depositados en un registro académico duradero. En otras palabras, los datos deben considerarse productos legítimos y citables de la investigación. La citación de datos, al igual que la de otras evidencias y fuentes, es una buena práctica de investigación y forma parte del ecosistema académico que apoya la reutilización de datos.

los principios DC1 Data citation principles de FORCEE 11:

1. Importance

Data should be considered legitimate, citable products of research. Data citations should be accorded the same importance in the scholarly record as citations of other research objects, such as publications[1].

2. Credit and Attribution

Data citations should facilitate giving scholarly credit and normative and legal attribution to all contributors to the data, recognizing that a single style or mechanism of attribution may not be applicable to all data[2].

3. Evidence

In scholarly literature, whenever and wherever a claim relies upon data, the corresponding data should be cited[3].

4. Unique Identification

A data citation should include a persistent method for identification that is machine actionable, globally unique, and widely used by a community[4].

5. Access

Data citations should facilitate access to the data themselves and to such associated metadata, documentation, code, and other materials, as are necessary for both humans and machines to make informed use of the referenced data[5].

6. Persistence

Unique identifiers, and metadata describing the data, and its disposition, should persist — even beyond the lifespan of the data they describe[6].

7. Specificity and Verifiability

Data citations should facilitate identification of, access to, and verification of the specific data that support a claim. Citations or citation metadata should include information about provenance and fixity sufficient to facilitate verfiying that the specific timeslice, version and/or granular portion of data retrieved subsequently is the same as was originally cited[7].

8. Interoperability and Flexibility

Data citation methods should be sufficiently flexible to accommodate the variant practices among communities, but should not differ so much that they compromise interoperability of data citation practices across communities[8].
