We wrote a preprint a few years back https://peerj.com/preprints/3304/ on the client libraries for GBIF for R, Python, and Ruby.
I’m preparing a manuscript to submit to Methods in Ecology and Evolution - draft at https://github.com/sckott/gbifms/blob/gh-pages/manuscript_mee.pdf
I’m curious to hear thoughts on sections that could be added - or ideas/etc that are important in the context of the paper topic, but have been left out.
I added a section Citing GBIF Data covering how to get citations for GBIF data. Before I submit the manuscript I’m planning to add some methods to
pygbif for citations https://github.com/sckott/pygbif/issues/60 so that both R and Python clients have citation helpers
