Also, the metadata is currently very expensive to produce. This has to be done in a partnership between researchers and specialists who are paid to do this kind of work, whether it is in data centers or libraries. We have to involve experts whose job is to worry about quality control and metadata production, and that is also very expensive. So, we have to keep in mind these issues and requirements when we think about data citation techniques.
