Citing data is an important step in research reproducibility. There are several tools you can use to cite your data:

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
