[2014-05-15]  From : Cold and Arid Regions Science Data Center at Lanzhou

Users should cite the data in their publications, but how cite the datasets? A simple guide is offered here.

1. Please cite the "paper cite" of the dataset, you can find this information in the detail page of the dataset.

2. If your publication can cite dataset directly, you can cite the dataset just as if it is a normal publication.

3. If your publication could not support to cite the dataset directly, please cite the dataset with a doi in your content, like:

the xxx dataset (doi:10.3972/xxx)
