Incentive to share your data: how to get cited | Political Science Replication
"A workshop recap by the Open Economics Working Group has a great section on how to create incentive structures for scholars to share their work. The main goal is to make your data citable – and here’s how to make it work ...  The Interuniversity Consortium for Political and Social Research (ICPSR) is one of the oldest data repositories in the U.S. and currently develops open access data as a new product: researchers publish their original data, tied with data citation and DOI, and download statistics (see more in workshop slidesby Amy Pienta from the ICPSR) ...  The DataVerse Network is self-serviced by authors [I publish my teaching materials there], that was originally only for social scientists and now opens up to all disciplines (see slides by Mercè Crosas from the Institute for Quantitative Social Science, Harvard University).  An alternative is DataCite, which provides DOIs for data and usage statistics and reports. They have now started a new initiative to create researchers’ profiles with their listed data output (see slides by Joan Starr from DataCite, California Digital Library).  Finally, a way to push for even more citations, or 'better' ones than just a data set, is a data paper. According to Brian Hole (Ubiquity Press) a 'data paper' means that data are stored in a public repository together with a short data paper – and this paper also can be cited. A data paper should describe the methodology with which a dataset was compiled, the data itself and how the data could be used (see more in his slides)."
