Phase 5: Cite your data and create a local data catalog
Cite your data
After data packages are uploaded to the repository, you will received a DOI and a recommended citation. Once published, you can update your ORCID profile and CV with this new scientific product.
- Recommended data citation: Dataset Author. Publication Year. Dataset Title. Environmental Data Initiative. DOI. Date Dataset Accessed.
- Examle: Briceno H. 2016. Microbial Sampling from Shark River Slough and Taylor Slough, Everglades National Park, South Florida (FCE) from January 2001 to Present. Environmental Data Initiative. http://dx.doi.org/10.6073/pasta/6c7329d6544b7c1ee1118f5ba068b957. Dataset accessed 5/05/2017.
- How to link your data package to your ORCID record.
Create a local data catalog for your website
The following resources give instructions on how to link between your data packages in the EDI repository and your organization’s website.
- With the help of the PASTA+ search API you can capitalize on EDI repository web services to create a customized, searchable data catalog on your institution’s website, without having to store data or metadata:
- This Beaufort Lagoon Ecosystems (BLE) LTER GitHub site contains example code supporting such functionality. You can see how it is implemented, collaborate on improvements, or simply download the code for your own site. In this webinar “Going static with LTER websites”, Tim Whiteaker, Information Manager for the BLE LTER demonstrates how to utilize external servers to support a searchable data catalog via the PASTA+ search API.
- See this EDI webinar and presentation slides for instructions on how to use the PASTA+ search API.
- An easy way to create a local data catalog is to list the your data packages that are archived in EDI on your webpage, along with a static link to the data package in the EDI portal. This option is not dynamic and won’t allow you to search for your data packages from your website. More information can be found in this webinar and presentation slides.
