General Information
GBIF, the Global Biodiversity Information Facility, is an international open data infrastructure, funded by governments. It is not a data repository. Rather, GBIF indexes thousands of datasets shared freely by hundreds of institutions worldwide making it the biggest biodiversity database on the Internet. GBIF.org makes the data discoverable and citable, assigning each download a DOI and storing it for an extended period of time. More than 1 peer-reviewed research publication citing GBIF as a source of data is published every day, in studies spanning the impacts of climate change, the spread of pests and diseases, priority areas for conservation and food security. To share your data with GBIF follow this quick guide: http://www.gbif.org/publishing-data/quick-guide To deposit/host your data, it is recommended you use one of the trusted IPT data hosting centres (DHC) listed in FAIRsharing.org. The DHC will provide you with an account on their IPT, which will allow you to manage your own datasets and publish them through GBIF.org.
