Abstract

This report examines the opportunities for promoting dataset citation in the field of Public Health and Epidemiology. We provide a landscape review of the current initiatives addressing data publishing and data citation. Drawing on consultation with experts in the field of Epidemiology research we examine how these initiatives can be applied to the specific challenges associated with datasets generated in this area. We provide recommendations for future development, identifying priorities for further consultation.
