Data Linking

Scopus makes strides in data linking

on Thu, 09/28/2017 - 20:31

The ability to access and review the data behind research is a well sought after, but often elusive, resource. In recognition of this, Scopus has been working to incorporate new tools that can make it easier to search and share data. As part of a new initiative introduced earlier this year, Scopus has established two key partnerships: Scholix and DataSearch. Each provide different but complementary ways to connect researchers to each other’s data.

Scholix

Introduced in April of 2017, Scopus was an early adopter of Scholix, an interoperability initiative to create a framework for scholarly link exchange. Scopus collaborates with Scholix’s community hub, the Data-Literature Interlinking Service (DLI). The DLI service populates and provides access to a graph of dataset-literature links collected from a variety of major data centers, publishers, and research organizations.

DataSearch

DataSearch (https://datasearch.elsevier.com/) is an Elsevier search engine dedicated to research data. It is the first search engine that can search not only in the description or metadata of the articles, but also in the data itself. It is also possible to see a preview of the data directly from the search results, as well as downloading the full dataset. More information about DataSearch can be found here.

The new collaboration with DataSearch means that when you run a search in Scopus, the same search will concurrently run in DataSearch. If any data results are found, you will find a link (listing the number of results found) on the Scopus search results page. Clicking on this link will open a new window in DataSearch.
