NIF is proud to support this important effort by members of FORCE11 (the future of scholarly communications) and request that the NIF community comment.

Announcing the “Draft Declaration of Data Citation Principles” .    The Data Citation Synthesis group of 40 individuals from 25+ organizations developed these draft principles over the past 9 months and now welcome feedback and comments from the community.    The feedback received by the end of 2013 will be reviewed and incorporated into the final principles.  Once the final principles are published, a mechanism will be in place for worldwide endorsement.  

Thanks for your input.
