Dear all,

I have been part of an international group that developed a set of 'Data citation principles' to be used in scholarly communications when referring to data. The group did a good job (I believe) in synthesizing a number of independent initiatives that existed before (see http://www.force11.org/node/4785 for the list of participants). The principles are here:


I guess this is very relevant to this group as a background information.

There is also the possibility of 'endorsing' those principles; this can be done either as individuals or as institutions:


Any endorsement is of course welcome (the page opened yesterday, so the number of endorsement is still low at this moment:-) The more the merrier:-)
