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.
