The Force11 Working Group (Future of Research Communications and e-Scholarship) has been working on a declaration of data citation principles. The draft declaration has been posted here: http://www.force11.org/datacitation. The working group wants to collect public comments through the end of December. At that time the feedback will be incorporated into the declaration and a final version will be released.
The DataONE Community Engagement working group has created a list of links to studies, reports, and surveys wherein the needs of researchers related to data management were assessed. This list was generated by Carly Stasser (CDL), Stephanie Wright (U Washington) and Gail Steinhart (Cornell).
