Citing data is an important step in research reproducibility. There are several tools you can use to cite your data:
- Cite your data with Cross Cite. Enter a DOI (digital object identifier) into the search box and choose a formatting style. If your data set does not have a DOI, skip to set 2. If this is your dataset, consider uploading your data to a repository that will offer a DOI. Find the right registry for your data through re3data.
- If the data you are choosing to cite does not have DOI, cite you data in an AMA format with Citation Machine. This is a free tool that allows you to input your citation information and quickly output a style.
