Today the two particle physics theorists François Englert and Peter W. Higgs, Nobel prize in Physics for 2013, will receive their awards in Sweden.
The data confirming the existince of the Higgs-Boson can be cited with a DataCite DOI: 10.7484/INSPIREHEP.DATA.A78C.HK44

Force 11: Draft Declaration of Data Citation Principles

People have been working on data citation issues for a long time. Different groups and different communities have come up with different guidelines and recommendations on how data should be cited. The different approaches generally agree in principle, but there are some distinct differences. It is fair to say that the different approaches were almost seen as competing in some way.

Summer meeting talks (slides + audio)

We are happy to announce that the full talks (slides and audio) of the 2013 DataCite Summer meeting are now available. Please click here to see all talks with their respective presentations and slides.

ODIN Project Outputs

DataCite is participating in the European Commission FP7 project ORCID and DataCite Interoperability Network (ODIN), running from September 2012 to August 2014. After a successful conference last month in Geneva we are proud to disseminate all the scientific deliverables produced so far:

ODIN Deliverables.

We will keep informing about the progress of this exciting project.
