The GBIF data portal is a focal point in the flow of biodiversity data. The feedback and data cleaning tools provided through the portal influence the quality of data being published by providers. GBIF should place the use and re-use of identifiers as a high priority in assessing the quality of data. GBIF should move to a position where it mandates the use of identifiers and well known vocabularies for all data accepted by the portal.
