Citation capture - complete the survey

A new research initiative is interested in how repositories and special collections are cited in academic publications.

The study is looking to discover how repositories are cited in academic research (citation capture). Archivists, librarians, academics and publishers are invited to participate in a survey that asks:

  • What user information repositories are currently gathering
  • What guidance is given to users regarding how they should cite a repository within a publication
  • Are repositories actively surveying citations
  • Attitudes to the possible creation of a more uniform system of citation to repositories. 

The study (conducted by TheResearchBase) is a collaborative initiative between Research Libraries UK, The National Archives and Jisc.
