Citing ASDC Data

Data Citations and Acknowledgements

Citations: Datasets and related data products and services are provided by the NASA Langley Research Center's (LaRC) ASDC DAAC and are managed by the NASA Earth Science Data and Information System (ESDIS) project. The LARC ASDC DAAC is one of the Earth Observing System Data and Information System (EOSDIS) Distributed Active Archive Centers (DAACs), part of the ESDIS project. NASA data are freely accessible; however, when you publish these data or works based on the data, we request that you cite the datasets within the text of the publication and include a reference to them in your reference list. References to datasets, like the examples, below, should have enough detail to provide readers of your publication with the ability to obtain the datasets and conduct their own studies based on your work. (For complete provenance and understanding of parts of data were used and how, it also may be necessary to describe in detail, within the body of the publication, exactly how the data were used.)

Citation Generator: Landing pages for collections that have a Digital Object Identifier (DOI) box also have a link to a page that will generate citations in a variety of formats, including downloadable formats for use in citation management applications.

Acknowledgements:The data obtained from the ASDC are free of charge for use in research, publications and commercial applications. When data from the ASDC are used in a publication, we request this acknowledgment be included: "These data were obtained from the NASA Langley Research Center Atmospheric Science Data Center." Please include such statements, either where the use of the data or other resource is described, or within the Acknowledgements section of the publication.

Reprints Please

The ASDC requests a reprint of any published papers or reports or a brief description of other uses (e.g., posters, oral presentations, etc.) of data that we have distributed. This will help us determine the use of data that we distribute, which is helpful in optimizing product development. It also helps us to keep our product-related references current.
