individuals, or an institution). We also need to recognize individual’s role in creating the dataset. We need also to identify when it was first released or whether it is a one-time release or frequently updated. Also, the citation should link back to the primary URI of the dataset and then the citation itself needs to have a persistent identifier (preferably DOI) so the entire citation string can be resolved. Also, we need to consider the date of the first release, the latest updates, and the number of data records that we can actually access from a particular dataset.

Table 17-1 provides a sampling of GBIF’s styles for potential citation strings or styles for the publisher supplied citations.
