Referencing

Digital Assets from Online Repositories

Cluster projects that obtain digitized material or digital assets from online repositories/archives or comparable services should ensure that the reference to the digital object is always provided. Thus, the digital object should always be referenced through the corresponding identifier. Ideally, the name and URL of the online repository or service should also be mentioned. This applies both to the use of digitized material in publications and to the recording of digitized material as research data.

Example 1

The first image shows the digital library Deutsche Digitale Bibliothek. We want to reference a digital copy of a graphic artwork showing Desiderius Erasmus. The online platform provides a stable URL, that can be used as an identifier for the digital copy. You should always use this stable URL for referencing the digital copy in your publication and your data sets.

Data Sets from External Data Sources

If you want to cite or re-use data from external data sources, please ensure that the reference to the data set is always provided. To this end, the data set should always be referenced by using the corresponding identifier. Ideally, the name and URL of the online repository or service should also be registered. This applies to both the citing of data sets in publications as well as re-using data for your own research dataset.

Example 2

The second image shows the platform DraCor, which provides different datasets for plays like network data or encoded texts. To reference the play and the data sets, you should use the corresponding DraCor-identifier.
