I'm trying to recover my password to the ESIP forum ... but the "Joe mentioned DDC (?) and JIST - reports on citations and other data aspects"

I might've screwed up the first part (DCC, Digital Curation Centre); the second one is JISC (Joint Informations System Committee).

Specifically, the data citation guide is:


(which has an extensive bibliography via their footnotes)

... and they also have other reports & manuals on writing data management plans, licensing, appraisal & selection, curation in general, etc:


... and links to a ton of other things:


JISC has a list of projects & reports on various topics important to data centers ... infrastructure, preservation, curation, standards, staff development, legal/ethics, etc:



JISC is UK based, but there are groups / programs in Canada and Australia that serve similar roles:



And associated reports and such:

(and with all of those, we'd have a treasure trove of articles & reports related to data & managing it)
