A data citation in depth

We will start with a brief example. Figure 14-1 below shows the home page from my own scholarly virtual archive (or “dataverse”). This is virtual archive contains all of the data that I have disseminated as part of my own research. Note that although this virtual archive is organized as a single collection, many of the datasets listed actually are distributed by different archives, and may be stored in different locations.

Shown below is the catalog page for a particular dataset in this collection. The catalog page for this dataset shows descriptive information about it. The “data and analysis” tab (not shown), allows users to download the data itself, and to perform on-line analyses.
