Data Citation as a Computational Problem

Citation management ... with useful hints to maintenance of knowledge.

" .... Most information is now published in complex, structured, evolving
datasets or databases. There is increasing demand that this digital information
should be treated in the same way as conventional publications
and be appropriately cited. While principles and standards have been
developed for data citation, they are unlikely to be used unless we can
couple the process of extracting information with that of providing a citation
for it. We discuss how to generate citations automatically for data
in a database given how the data was obtained – the query – as well as
the content – the data. We show how the problem of generating a citation
is related to a well-understood problem in databases and describe this in
two examples with radically different citation requirements. ... "
