Data Citation Index from Thomson Reuters and ICPSR unveiled at ALA conference

The new Data Citation Index offered by Thomson Reuters in partnership with ICPSR will be previewed for participants in the American Library Association conference in Anaheim, CA, June 22-26.

The service, scheduled for release later this year, seamlessly connects published peer-reviewed articles with the datasets on which they are based. Publications in Thomson Reuters' Web of Science online service will contain links directly to the datasets cited in the articles.

In a press release, ICPSR Assistant Director Mary Vardigan said the Data Citation Index will enhance the discoverability of data and highlight the importance of research data in the scientific process.

To learn more about the service, visit the Thomson Reuters booth, #1200, at the ALA conference.
