Ag Data Commons supports open data discovery and access, and meets the criteria for inclusion in authoritative registries such as FAIRsharing, Re3Data, COPDESS, and DataCite, which collectively promote scientific standards, policies, and databases/repositories for the research community, funders, and publishers. We encourage citation of the Ag Data Commons in papers where the overall repository is mentioned, using the Digital Object Identifier (DOI) https://doi.org/10.25504/FAIRsharing.83wDfe or http://doi.org/10.17616/R3G051.
