Summary:

This straightforward use-case describes the scenario whereby an end-user wishes to find out which scientific papers refer to the current dataset, or else the climate model that was used to generate the dataset.

Typical Course of Events

  1. Having selected a CIM record of interest, the end-user selects one of the following options from the CIM system web interface:
    1. Show citations for scientific papers which describe the current dataset.
    2. Show citations for scientific papers which describe the climate model used to generate the current dataset.
    3. [Would it make sense to include a third option combining i and ii above? Might be a long list!]
  2. The CIM system searches the metadata records in the CIM repository for scientific citations relating to the chosen dataset or model.
  3. The web interface displays the list of citations, or a suitable informational message if none exist.

Alternative Course of Events
