We introduced object- and paragraph-level citation for texts, using the APA citation format in our online data access system, QualiBank.
QualiBank enables searching and browsing of qualitative data, interviews and open-ended questions. For our within-text citations, we are not explicitly using DataCite DOIs, although our textual citation refers to the higher level UK Data Service collection DOI to which the text belong.
It's important to note that the DOI itself is not generated by this process and is retrieved from elsewhere as a pre-existing identifier for the parent dataset. It's also important to note that the DOI is *not* the same as the citation identifier in this system.
The structured metadata for each citation created on the fly is as follows:
