Details on the proper credit/citations:
Except for data under CC0 sharing policy, proper credit/citations for all individual datasets are required, even when multiple datasets are used together. The citation section in the metadata of individual Dataset Page(s) should be used as the proper credit/citations. For your convenience, the zipped file for download data includes datasets_and_citations.csv that lists all the datasets, their citations and links to online metadata (notes: datasets_and_citations.csv has only one row for the daatset when users downloaded data with "Dataset on Dataset Page" option. For other options, the csv file lists all the datasets that provided data users downloaded),
