The University Library has arranged a trial of the Data Citation Index which will run until 14th December 2012.

  • Discover international repositories and their deposited data studies, data sets, using the Thomson Reuters value add indexing.
  • Navigate between related records within a repository.
  • Link to the repository record to access the deposited data.
  • See how data connects to scientific literature published in journals, books and conference proceedings.
