Cite a resource

The catalogue can provide an automatic citation based on information provided in the metadata record.


The citation can be use to cite a dataset in publications.

Citation text

The citation generated by default follows general conventions on how to cite a dataset but can be customized.

The default is: * list of authors (and organisation) * publication year * title * list of publisher * DOI URL or landing page URL.

These are the data needed to create DOI (see Digital Object Identifier (DOI)).

Customization of the citation can be done in source file schemas/iso19115-3.2018/src/main/plugin/iso19115-3.2018/formatter/citation/common.xsl.

An additional text may be stored in an online resource description with protocol WWW:LINK-1.0-http--publication-URL.
