At DOE’s Atmospheric Radiation Measurement Program (ARM) data center at Oak Ridge National Laboratory they are making a concerted effort to ensure that authors, who use their data properly, attribute and cite the data sets they are using. There was an historical look at publications to ensure that those using ARM data had a citation to that data. They worked with Thompsons Reuters to make sure when data were cited that there could be an active link between the data set and the publication. Going forward with new publications, ARM always asks people who request their data to cite the data when they are used in articles. Further, ARM tells the requestor how to cite the data to make it easier and to ensure quality of the citation. The DOI (which is assigned to all ARM datasets) is the critical linkage between the data set and the scientific publication.
