In Taxonomic Paper manuscripts intended for publication in Biodiversity Data Journal, specimen records can be imported either manually, or from Darwin Core-compliant Excel spreadsheets, or online from GBIF, BOLD, iDigBio, and PlutoF.
Step 1. Expand the Materials section of the treatment for which you want to import specimen or occurrence records by clicking on the pen next to it.
Step 2. Occurrence record import from iDigBio is possible via the UUID of the record(s).
For the import to be successful, enter the UUID of the record(s) and paste it/them in the search interface. Select the iDigBio source and click "Add". You may separate several ID’s by the pipe ("|") symbol.
*Search and find the record(s) you would like to import at the iDigBio website (https://www.idigbio.org/), copy the UUID of the record(s) and paste it/them in the search interface as shown in Step 2.
