Description (last modified by rgrp) (diff)

Some sort of citation helper. Something small on the dataset and resource page that would show how to cite.

wwaites: Some related thoughts on this from opb: http://homepages.inf.ed.ac.uk/opb/papers/ssdbm2006.pdf

timclicks: I'm looking at Dataverse for the first time[0]. It seems very popular in the social sciences. I noticed that there is a recommended citation for each dataset. For example, [1] is has this one: "Targeted Input Programme (TIP) 2000-01", http://hdl.handle.net/1902.1/SSC-MWI-TIP2000-01-M1 V1 [Version]"


Add a small box at bottom of dataset / resource page (or in sidebar on dataset page) with title "Cite this" with contents like:

%title. %author. Retrieved %date. %site_title.

For resource: %title = %dataset_title. %resource_name.

Could also add export to ref managers (e.g. to bibtex) but that is for later.

I have implemented this on the datahub, but this change likely needs to be made to CKAN core. Probably as part of 2.0.

The format on tdh is currently:

${TITLE}. ${AUTHOR}. Retrieved ${UTC time}. ${DATASET LINK}

Best discuss and agree on what format should be supported. Mark, I've assigned this to you as it is tagged academia ;)
