Definition: A formal structured reference to another scholarly published or unpublished work. source: quoted from http://www.force11.org/node/4770, cited there as 'adapted from https://www.jstage.jst.go.jp/article/dsj/12/0/12_OSOM13-043/_pdf'
Examples:

In traditional print publishing, a "bibliographic citation" refers to a formal structured reference to another scholarly published or unpublished work. (This is in contrast to formal bibliometric terminology in which references are made, and citations received.) Typically, intra-document citation pointers to these structured references are marked and abbreviated. These are accompanied by the full bibliographic references to the work appearing in the bibliography or reference list, often following the end of the main text, and is called a "reference" or "bibliographic reference." Traditional print citations include "pinpointing" information, typically in the form of a page range that identifies which part of the cited work is being referenced.

http://www.force11.org/node/4770 adopts the more current usage in which "citation" is used to refer to the full bibliographic reference information for the object. The current usage leaves open the issue of the terminology used to describe the more granular references to data, including subsets of observations, variables, or other components and subsets of a larger data set.
