Software & Data Citation Use Cases

A GitHub site is being used for contributing and commenting on uses cases for the Software and Data Citation workshop.  Please click the link below to add, review, and/or comment on use cases:​   (credit to Matt Jones of the organizing committee for setting this up)


We encourage you to add your software & data citation use cases directly on the GitHub site above.  For an example use case, see Use Case #11.​  If you prefer, you may use the template below to create your use case and email it to one of the workshop organizing committee members and we will enter your use case for you on the above site (please retain the specific #'s and *'s shown in the following template as this is something called Markdown Syntax used by GitHub):
