Research Tools: National Agricultural Library: PubAg and Ag Data Commons Citation Interlinking

From the National Agriculture Library:

NAL’s exciting new search and discovery system for agricultural publications – includes links to supporting datasets, including those cataloged in Ag Data Commons.

Links in the opposite direction are also given in Ag Data Commons dataset records, pointing from the data to associated primary/data papers, methods citations, and related articles.

In PubAg, the dataset links are located in the Datasets: field, and in Ag Data Commons, the PubAg link is coded as the AgId: identifier for full-text access. The continued enhancement of data and publication linking will help support information discovery, reuse and innovation.
