Recommendation Title: An open, universal literature-data cross-linking service
Impact: Improves visibility, discoverability, re-use and reproducibility by bringing existing article/data links together, normalize them using a common schema, and expose the full set as an open service
ExternalServices using the cross-linking service:
The Scholix initiative, a high level interoperability framework for exchanging information about the links between scholarly literature and data.
The DLI Service,the first exemplar aggregation and query service fed by the Scholix open information ecosystem.
The ICSU-WDS & RDA Publishing Data Services group proposes an approach to sharing information about the links between the literature and research data. A set of hubs will collect literaturedata (as well as datadata) links from their natural communities using minor extensions to existing local procedures and, in some cases, inference. The hubs agree on an interoperability framework with a common information model and open exchange methods, optimised for exchanging information among the hubs. The hubs will serve as an enabling global information infrastructure for the development of (third party) services.
