Among the advantages of publishing your collections to the GBIF data portal is the ability to track citations to your digitized collections. That list of “pros” has grown; now these important metrics can even be displayed on your collections profile within your Symbiota portal using the GBIF citation widget!
Examples of the widget in use:
- CCH2: OBI’s collections profile display’s the widget as a “count“
- COLO: The CU herbarium’s portal display’s the widget as a “feed“
Contact the Hub (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you’d like to have the citation widget added to your collection’s profile.
