VAMDC bridged the gap between atomic and molecular (A&M) producers and users through providing an interoperable e-infrastructure connecting A&M databases, as well as tools to extract and manipulate those data. The current paper highlights the usage of the VAMDC Portal, recalls how data citation is implemented within VAMDC and provides insights about usage of VAMDC that will increase the impact factor of A&M producers and will offer a more reliable citation of A&M datasets included in application fields.
