Author Better into View: Recommended Bibliographical Citation Changed
The FSD has changed the recommended bibliographical citation for the archived datasets. The purpose of this change is to bring the authors better into view and also to simplify the citation. The Archive's previous recommendation for bibliographical citation accompanying the datasets delivered to re-users differs from the current one. The new citation can be copied from the data description as such or modified according to the standards prevailing in the scientific field in question.
