Barriers to Data and Software Sharing: The Reference Manager Gap
AGU and other publishers have developed guidance for authors to support best practices for data and software sharing and citation, but there remains a significant gap in knowledge and implementation of these practices amongst scientists during the publication process. Reference managers are an important tool to facilitate uptake of data and software citation, but this infrastructure is not yet adequately developed for these applications. In this poster, we compare and contrast dataset and software citation capabilities amongst major reference managers and numerous data repositories to begin a conversation about technical improvements to this critical component of FAIR data infrastructure. This poster was presented during the 2024 January Earth Science Information Partners (ESIP) Meeting held virtually (Jan. 23-26, 2024).
