Synchronizing citation and other data across data systems

Community Member kudos icon + Community member

USGS has separate data systems for project descriptions, publications, biographical web pages for scientists, peer review and highlights. These systems do not share information that is required by multiple systems. All require citation information for publications. If they were all synchronized, and one fed information into the others, the information could be entered once (saving time and effort), could be kept more accurate (because they would not require separate mechanisms for data entry and quality control), and could more easily feed into systems that inform management and the public about publications, one of our most important products.

I agree to have my idea, not my name or information, posted online. YES
