Automated use feedback and showcasing
RECOMMENDATION 11: AUTOMATED USE FEEDBACK & SHOWCASING
Use feedback for Recorders and Data Providers should be built into all automated processes facilitated by the NBN Atlas.
The NBN Atlas should provide a suite of reporting tools to report how and when records or datasets have been viewed, reported or downloaded, wherever it is feasible to do so.
A ‘Use Feedback’ option for Data Users to volunteer details of how they have used records or datasets for a given purpose should also be available to facilitate the showcasing of high-value uses.
Innovation around reporting the provenance and use of biological records, and the impact or value of use, should be encouraged and showcased.
