Zenodo Enables a New Workflow for Collectors of Natural History Specimens

Shorthouse, David P.; Goodwin, Dr. Zoë; Samanta Orellana, K.

Bionomia, launched August 2018 with the aim of linking natural history specimen records to people who collected them and/or identified them to species. The two main goals are to:

(1) give credit to and improve the visibility of people who have contributed to the world’s natural history collections (see Thessen et al., 2019; McDade et al., 2011); and,

(2) encourage natural history collections data managers to incorporate these new digital annotations into their source data warehouses, which completes a round-trip of high-quality, curated annotations.

Zenodo is a key piece of infrastructure to help realize the first goal, especially for graduate students and early career researchers who desire a breadth of ways to illustrate their expertise and impact.
