Citation of the week


#1

We don’t often see GBIF-mediated data used in Science papers, but this week this one popped up in our literature tracking:

At first glance, the only mention of GBIF is a reference to a paper about GBIF. But Science being Science, Materials and Methods is hidden away in a Supplement with this sentence:

Current species distribution data were obtained from the Global Biodiversity Information Facility (GBIF; (34)).

And the reference?

  1. C. Yesson, P. W. Brewer, T. Sutton, N. Caithness, J. S. Pahwa, M. Burgess, W. A. Gray, R.
    J. White, A. C. Jones, F. A. Bisby, A. Culham, How global is the global biodiversity
    information facility? PLOS ONE 2, e1124 (2007). doi:10.1371/journal.pone.0001124
    Medline

How this is allowed, is simply beyond me…


#2

We need the option to un-heart / un-favorite these threads…


#3

Why? I mean, you can?


#4

The opposite. Unlike. ‘Like’ seems like a counterintuitive to me in such cases :-\


#5

Ah gotcha. Like down-vote?

Thought for a second you meant the ability to remove a like, which is totally possible. De-liking, if you will.


#6

I tried to de-like a post and it didn’t work for me. :frowning:


#7

I just liked this and then de-liked it…
