The Scholix Framework and the OpenAIRE Scholexplorer Service (OpenAIRE webinar by Paolo Manghi)

  1. 1. 1 The Scholix Framework and the OpenAIRE Scholexplorer Service
  2. 2. 2 Linking Datasets and the Literature: why? Why linking? 1. Increase visibility & discoverability of research data (and articles) 2. Support credit attribution mechanisms 3. Facilitate reproducibility, i.e. place research data in the right context to enable proper re-use. Linking Research Data with the Literature is of great value, yet current solutions are not realizing the potential Examples • Some data repositories keep track of articles that cite, or refer to, their data • Some publishers have applications to link articles with data hosted externally • Providers of bibliographic information and infrastructure providers are taking efforts to “connect the dots”
  3. 3. 3 Sharing Scholarly Communication Links Sources are not interoperable (publishers, data centers, repositories, infrastructure providers, …) 1. Different PID systems (DOI, accession numbers) 2. Different ways of referencing data (formal citations, in-text references, …) 3. Different moments of citing data (at submission, at publication, post publication, …) 4. No agreement on link representation and sharing… Linking Dataset with the Literature is of great value, yet current solutions are not realizing the potential technical social
  4. 4. 4… what is lacking is an overall, cohesive vision and approach to bring these together ▪ : a high-level interoperability framework for enabling exchange of scholarly links between literature and data ▪Connecting technical linking solutions by providing an overarching framework with practical guidelines, underpinned by a common vision ▪An enabler of services e.g. ▪Global aggregation ▪Impact evaluation
  5. 5. 5
  6. 6. 6 An RDA/ICSU product Interoperability Guidelines Based on consensus RDA/ICSU-WDS “Data Publication Services” WG (ended) RDA /ICSU-WDS Scholarly Link Exchange WG (just started) many others… It is NOT a service
  7. 7. 7 Scholix Guidelines ▪A framework for aligning the exchange of scholarly link information between scholarly infrastructure providers • Information Model for scholarly links representation • Recommendation and provision of exchange formats (XML/JSON schema) and protocols

  18. 18. 19 Extend your existing metadata feed to e.g., ▪ DataCite ▪ CrossRef ▪ OpenAIRE ▪ Expose your links using the Scholix Guidelines ▪ Register as a provider (implementor) to be included in the Scholexplorer aggregation Option 1: Feed your links to an existing Scholix hub Option 2: Become a Scholix content provider How to join in?
  19. 19. 20 How to join in? ▪ Use the information from the Scholix hubs in your own service, e.g. resolution of PIDs to identify links, build application-specific information graphs Option 3: Develop/enhance a third- party service ▪ Help expand and document the Scholix Guidelines or to take them into new areas. Option 4: Help develop the guidelines
