Expanding Scholix to support software: your input required

16 May 2023

Scholix is a long-recognized standard (developed via RDA) to support linking between different objects, predominantly data and publications. The RDA/WDS Scholarly Link Exchange (Scholix) working group has generated a Scholix metadata schema, helped implement this schema in multiple Scholix hubs and other infrastructure providers, and built a community that provides data citation services. The group continues to work on Scholix adoption with repositories, publishers and other industry groups, along with work with the software community over the past year to explore expanding the schema to support software linking and citation.   

We've realised that we don't have to reinvent the wheel to support software, but we recognize that doing so is key to linking up the research ecosystem and supporting reproducibility, credit and transparency so we'd like to discuss our proposals to evolve Scholix to further support community needs.

In this webinar we'll discuss: 

  • Background on / history of the development of the Scholix schema 
  • Motivations for adding software
  • A first draft of the modified schema Instances/examples of the schema showing how software is captured and what kinds of relationships to data and articles could be captured 
  • Where we are with data and how best to support best practices in the schema

We welcome your feedback so please join us for this session!
