Title Data publication
Abstract This paper presents a discussion of the issues associated with formally publishing data in academia. We begin by motivating the reasons why formal publication of data is necessary, which range from simple fact that it is possible, to the changing disciplinary requirements. We then discuss the meaning of publication and peer review in the context of data, provide a detailed description ofthe activities one expects to see in the peer review of data, and present a simple taxonomy ofdata publication methodologies. Finally, we introduce the issues of dataset granularity, transience and semantics in the context of a discussion of how to cite datasets, before presenting recommended citation syntax.
