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.
