Data and publications are major outputs of science, but are typically managed in different ways in data archives and institutional repositories. In this paper we discuss a protocol for exchanging cross-citations between data and publications, so that the links between can be tracked and used. We describe a simple instance of such a protocol based on the well-known Trackback protocol, and give an example of how the protocol can be used to exchange citations between a data archive and a publication repository. We conclude by discussing the generalisation of the protocol and its implications for scholarly discourse.
