PANGAEA® - Publishing Network for Geoscientific & Environmental Data ( currently provides published data entities for download that can be cited like publications using authors, year, title and a Digital Object Identifier (DOI). Since February 2010, PANGAEA implements  ‘reciprocal linking’ – automatically linking research data sets deposited at PANGAEA to corresponding articles in Elsevier journals on its electronic platform ScienceDirect and vice versa. Recently PANGAEA adds a Google Maps Embed to every ScienceDirect article that has associated research data at PANGAEA; it displays all geographical locations for which such data is available. A single click then brings the user from the ScienceDirect article to the research data set at PANGAEA.
