So I’m seeing in the guidelines that the best practice for citing iNaturalist data in a paper is to access through GBIF and cite their dynamic DOI. However, it is my understanding that the GBIF dataset only includes research-grade images. If I am using both research-grade and needs-ID or casual, is there any best practice? Is there a way to download a specific project’s data directly from GBIF?
I’ve considered that one way to do it is to plunk the dataset as I get it from iNaturalist with the query in a repository with the data products I’ll have to put somewhere anyway and use that DOI, but I did want to see if there was a best practice I’ve missed.
