The organisers of a session on 'Measuring the Impact of Data Citation Practices in Research’ at SciDataCon<https://www.scidatacon.org/IDW2018/>  part of International Data Week<http://internationaldataweek.org/>  invite the submission of abstracts.

We invite researchers and organisations that are looking at the impact of data citation to consider contributing to this session.

Session Title: Measuring the Impact of Data Citation Practices in Research

Data citation has been advocated across and within many research enterprises globally. Individual researchers have adopted data citation as part of their work and an increasing number of publishers and funders are now encouraging or requiring some level of data citation. The benefits of data citation are clear: besides increasing the visibility of data resources, improving the integrity of research and publications, there is a general trend of acknowledgment and accreditation being associated with data citation. Researchers are beginning to see the value in the citation of their data to be as important as citation of their other outputs.

While the benefits extend beyond reuse and accreditation, there is however little insight into the real impact of data citation. A number of questions have to be addressed; for example, what metrics can be used to measure the impact of data citation and how should impact be measured?
