How to acknowledge Argo data:


Argo data are freely available without restriction. However, to track uptake and impact, we ask that where Argo data are used in a publication or product, an acknowledgement be given. There are two options to acknowledge Argo data:

  • Cite an Argo DOI: the Argo Data Management Team assigns Digital Object Identifiers (DOIs) to Argo documents and datasets. These can easily be included in publications and keeps a direct and permanent link to the Argo document or data set used in that publication (to ensure reproducibility). The data sets are archived in monthly snapshots each with its own DOI. Please refer to the ADMT's DOI page to find the correct DOI to include in your publication or product.
  • If you are not able to use one of the DOIs listed on the ADMT page, please use the following acknowledgment:
    " These data were collected and made freely available by the International Argo Program and the national programs that contribute to it.  (http://www.argo.ucsd.edu,  http://argo.jcommops.org).  The Argo Program is part of the Global Ocean Observing System."
