Currently the citation do not include the complete citation. There is not enough information so for people to find the dataset. The ESA has a complete citation. We can edit the skin config files to have the citation be complete but there may be some steps that need to be taken regarding using the lisd (Life Science ID).

Here is what has been testing on test servers.

Files that are edited to update the citation information


The skins need to be listed in the file

and the skin.configs directory for each skin needs to include the parameters.

Here is an example:

contents of
registryname=KNB Data Registry

eml-identifier.xsl looks to see if the skin has these parameters.

Note the default skin will not be part of the citation update, but it may need to be addressed in some of the documentation for Metacat setup.

#1 Updated by Callie Bowdish over 12 years ago

Citations have been updated to include the Registry Name, data package LSID, and a URL that gives the full path to the data package. These are included when using the skins that are set to use them.

Shaun W. plans to check if there is a better way to store the parameter information for when to apply the citation information in the skin.

#2 Updated by Callie Bowdish about 12 years ago

The citation for data packages on different Metacat servers than the one do not have the correct text for the direct id link.

As an example the SANParks server citation for nikkis.34.16 contains the text for a path to the knb server. The link underneath the text,, goes to the SANParks server but if this text is referenced elsewhere the citation path is not for the same metacat server. If replication is not in use the knb location will not have the data package.
