    Ocean Networks Canada invites attendees to learn about our approach to citing dynamic and heterogeneous datasets. We leverage advances from the research data management community such as Research Data Alliance Data Citation Working Group’s recommendations, the Research Organization Registry (ROR) emergence, ROR integration within the DataCite schema, and revised Earth Sciences Information Partners citation guidelines. Even so, there were conceptual, technical and sustainability barriers to overcome. To allow users to cite the exact dataset subset and version, we refactored our infrastructure and curation processes to handle query details and versioning provenance. Substantial effort went into supporting geospatial extents for fixed-position, mobile and remote-sensing instruments. These improvements are represented in landing pages, web services and documentation.
