Add a data citation to a reference list

Where datasets are hosted in public repositories that provide datasets with persistent identifiers (such as Digital Object Identifiers (DOIs) or accession codes), we encourage these datasets to be formally cited in reference lists. Citations of datasets, when they appear in the reference list, should include the minimum information recommended by DataCite (Creator, Title, Publisher, Identifier, Publication Year) and should follow journal style. 

For example:

Hao, Z., AghaKouchak, A., Nakhjiri, N., Farahmand, A. Global Integrated Drought Monitoring and Prediction System (GIDMaPS) Data sets. figshare. (2014)

Barbosa, P., Usie, A. and Ramos, A. M. Quercus suber isolate HL8, whole genome shotgun sequencing project. GenBank (2018).
