How do I cite data I download from the DataONE system?
The citation you use depends upon which Member Node provided the data. Many Member Nodes provide specific data citation information within the metadata associated with the data record. If the metadata record does not contain specific data citation recommendations, refer to the MN repository website for more information. When in doubt, cite a dataset as you would cite a paper, include actionable links in the full text inline citation and the references section, and credit others as you would like others to credit you.
For more information about citing DataONE resources and other citation best practices see http://www.dataone.org/citing-dataone .
