Referencing the reserve system

Reserve users are asked to include acknowledgement of support from the UC Natural Reserve System in publications by citing NRS DOIs. Each reserve has been assigned a unique Digital Object Identifier (DOI). DOIs are widely used in academic publishing to identify content and link that content to its location on the internet. Reserve DOIs link to the NRS webpage for each reserve.

Why use NRS DOIs?

Including NRS DOIs in the searchable text of publications:

  • connects research papers, theses, reports, and other works with reserves
  • demonstrates the importance of the NRS in different fields of study
  • justifies financial and other support of the NRS by the University and donors

NRS acknowledgement wording

Publications that have benefited from the use of NRS sites or research assistance can acknowledge NRS support by including the following:

This work was performed (in part) at the University of California Natural Reserve System (name of site) Reserve DOI: (reserve DOI number).

 ORCID – an ID for you the researcher

Referencing the reserve system 1

ORCID provides a persistent digital identifier (an ORCID iD) that you own and control, and that distinguishes you from every other researcher. You can connect your iD with your professional information — affiliations, grants, publications, peer review, and more. You can use your iD to share your information with other systems, ensuring you get recognition for all your contributions, saving you time and hassle, and reducing the risk of errors.

Research Organization Registry (ROR)

Referencing the reserve system 2

The Research Organization Registry (ROR) is a global, community-led registry of open persistent identifiers for research organizations. ROR makes it easy for anyone or any system to disambiguate institution names and connect research organizations to researchers and research outputs. Adding a ROR into your published data helps to collect and display clean and consistent affiliation data, and helps sources create links to other affiliated institutions. – University of California Nature Reserve System

ISNI Record – International Standard Name Identifier

Referencing the reserve system 3 ISNI (International Standard Name Identifier) is an ISO standard in use by numerous libraries, publishers, databases, and rights management organizations. It is used to uniquely identify persons and organizations involved in creative activities, as well as their public personas in formats such as pseudonyms, stage names, record labels, or publishing imprints. ISNIs are primarily used by those involved in the content/media value chain, digital or physical, such as libraries, publishers, bibliographic services, rights management organizations, search engines, online stores, data aggregators, etc.
