Authors should also properly acknowledge any data provided by principal investigators or data originating from other cooperating or collaborating programs. In addition, ARM suggests offering co-authorship to an instrument mentor, data translator, or other ARM staff if they contributed substantially to the research or measurement beyond routinely providing data. Information on contacting instrument mentors and data translators about specific datastreams or data products should also be included.
Digital object identifiers, or DOI, numbers may also be used to reference data in publications. See the DOI Guidance for Datastreams for more information on citing ARM data.
