Automating Data Citation in CiteDB

Our paper “Automating Data Citation in CiteDB” will appear in PVLDB 2017 (Munich, Germany).


An increasing amount of information is being collected in structured, evolving, curated databases, driving the ques- tion of how information extracted from such datasets via queries should be cited. While several databases say how data should be cited for web-page views of the database, they leave it to users to manually construct the citations. Furthermore, they do not say how data extracted by queries other than web-page views general queries should be cited. This demo shows how citations can be specified for a small set of views of the database, and used to automatically gen- erate citations for general queries against the database.
