Dynamic Data Citation and Subset tool developed by CCCA Data Centre were presented at EGU 2018 in Vienna and at the RDA Plenary in Berlin. The oral presentation at EGU was held within the Future Shock Session: Evolving Earth Science Data and Information Systems across the entire research lifecycle. In Berlin we presented our web based tool successfully as a first comprehensive implementation for Dynamic Data Citation. Citing datasets in an appropriate manner is recognised as good scientific practice. Dealing with the original source as part of the provenance within the data life cycle is an essential basis for research data to carry out verification and reproducibility. To establish a reproducibly of data processes and their re- use, researchers need the ability to identify the exact version of a data set used. The Dynamic Data Citation is used for creating subsets.
