## Submitting issues
If you wish to submit concrete recommendations for the Darwin Core Standard that can be assessed, assigned, tracked, and archived, the Issue Tracking System on this site is the mechanism for managing these recommendations.
For any new issue, open the [Issues](http://code.google.com/p/darwincore/issues/list) page (accessible from this page by clicking on the `Issues` tab above. It may be a good idea to review the list of issues to see if the issue you want to report has already been reported. If it has, you may want to add comments to that existing issue. To do so, click on the row containing the issue to open it's detailed view, then click in the `Add a comment and make changes` text box and enter your comments. When you are finished, click on the `Save changes` button on the bottom of the page.
If you do not find an existing issue for what you want to report, click in the [New Issue](http://code.google.com/p/darwincore/issues/entry) link on the first row of controls on the [Issues](http://code.google.com/p/darwincore/issues/list) page. Decide which of the basic types of issues (see the list and specific instructions for these below) best matches the one you want to report and select the appropriate template in the `Template` selection box. A form appropriate to your choice will appear. Fill in the form as completely and clearly as possible following the guidelines given within the template itself. When you have finished filling in the form, click on the `Submit issue` button at the bottom of the page.
There are four types of issues that should be reported using this system. Descriptions of these categories of issues are given below and are directly accessible from the following links:

# Darwin Core
*Note: we are migrating the Darwin Core standard from [Google Code](https://code.google.com/p/darwincore/) to this repository on GitHub, which is not yet ready for production use. Go to http://rs.tdwg.org/dwc/ for the latest stable release.*
## Introduction
The Darwin Core is body of standards. It includes a glossary of terms (in other contexts these might be called properties, elements, fields, columns, attributes, or concepts) intended to facilitate the sharing of information about biological diversity by providing reference definitions, examples, and commentaries. The Darwin Core is primarily based on taxa, their occurrence in nature as documented by observations, specimens, samples, and related information. Included are documents describing how these terms are managed, how the set of terms can be extended for new purposes, and how the terms can be used.

### How to attribute and cite Darwin Core
Use the recommended citation format where possible. For applied uses, referencing `http://rs.tdwg.org/dwc/` suffices. When specifically citing the current Darwin Core Standard documentation, the recommended citation format is (substitute the parenthetical date accessed with today's date):
```

http://rs.tdwg.org/dwc/ (accessed on 2014-10-31).
```
For scholarly citations, consider reading and citing the seminal peer-reviewed article on Darwin Core:
```

Developed Biodiversity Data Standard. PLoS ONE 7(1): e29715. doi:10.1371/journal.pone.0029715
