Use Case: Data citation of a dataset with concurrent article publication

  • Contributors: Leslie Hsu

Goals and Summary

A user has a dataset that they want to cite in a paper submitted for publication, they have identified a repository that assigns dataset DOIs. One wants to include the dataset DOI in the publication and the publication DOI in the dataset, printed in hardcopy on both, and also linked in the metadata for both, all at once. This creates a chicken-and-egg scenario that can have a work-around (currently we (at a repository) assign a dataset DOI for a future release date, wait for the publication DOI, update the dataset metadata file with the publication DOI relationship, and only sometimes are able to include the publication DOI in the actual hardcopy of the dataset, which should not be altered after the original DOI assignment). What is the best practice for this?

Why is it important and to whom?

This is important to the author (they are confused as to what to do), and the repository (we are searching for a best practice as opposed to replacing/updated files/metadata afterward. Updating would be okay if there were an established method.)

Why hasn’t it been solved yet?

Maybe it has been solved! Someone tell me.

GFZ Potsdam has a workflow implemented for this use case. Authors can obtain a data DOI to include in the manuscript and a temporary link to the data for reviewers to access the data. The data publication can then the timed with respect to the publication of the paper.
