  • Dataset is stored in a publicly accessible repository
  • Researcher uses ANDS services to mint a Digital Object Identifier (doi) for the dataset
  • doi is used in data citation
  • Research community use the doi to access the dataset and carry out related research
  • Research community generate new publications using the doi to reference the dataset
  • Citation metrics services (e.g. Scopus, Web of Knowledge) accumulate citation references to the dataset and publication
  • Funding and research groups review publication and dataset citation metrics
  • Researcher future funding and promotion influenced by dataset citation metrics
