Citing Data

If you’re reusing a dataset to inform your own work, you’ll want to make sure that you are providing proper recognition. Datasets are scholarly products and should be cited as such.
A data citation should include, at the very least, the following elements:

  • Author
  • Title
  • Date
  • Version
  • Publisher/Archive/Distributor
  • Persistent identifier
  • Access Date

Here is an example:

Belarte Franco, Maria Carme; Pastor Quiles, María; Mateu Sagués, Marta; 0000-0002-2978-7201; Saorin, Carme; Pecci, Alessandra; Vila, Sílvia; Gomar, Ada, 2023, «Experimental combustions conducted at the Iberian Citadel of Calafell (Tarragona, Spain) between 2021 and 2022»,, CORA.Repositori de Dades de Recerca, V1.
