Data Title

The formal title or name of a cited data source (or a component of a cited data source) such as a dataset or spreadsheet.


Data titles as mentioned in citations (<element-citation> or <mixed-citation>), product descriptions (<product>), etc., may include applicable dates.
Best Practice Since datasets can contain very complex relationships for citing data, both the <source> element and this element may be used in a single citation, to describe different levels of the data source. The <data-title> is typically used as an equivalent of an article title (see samples below).
