The Chinese Ecosystem Research Network (CERN) is an important part of the knowledge innovation project of the Chinese Academy of Sciences established to monitor China's ecological environment changes, comprehensively study major issues in China's ecological environment, and develop resources in environmental science and ecology. CERN consists of one synthesis research center, five disciplinary sub-centers, and numerous ecological research stations representing diverse ecosystems, including agriculture, forests, grasslands, deserts, marshes, lakes, urban, karst, and marine.
Publications have long maintained a citation standard for research papers, ensuring credit for cited work and ideas. Tracking use of data collections, however, has remained a challenge. DataONE is pleased to share our latest effort in overcoming this barrier and in demonstrating data reuse with new data usage and citation metrics.
