Citation and Identifiers
Assigning identifiers to each item of data, software or research resource is essential to the future of research.
Identifiers are used in all computer-based systems to identify and retrieve datasets and software, and to connect data with related resources to enhance data discovery. They build connections and provide important provenance information to data and the resulting research.
Identifiers also enable data, physical samples and software to be a citable part of the scholarly record.
