• Scholix stands for "(a Framework for) Scholarly Link Exchange". It is the consensus achieved by a number of organisations — journal publishers, data centres, global service providers — to create an open global information ecosystem to collect and exchange links between research data and literature.
  • The Scholix recommendations are the output of the joint Research Data Alliance/ICSU World Data System Data Publishing Services Working Group.
  • Scholix is not an organisation. It is an interoperability initiative to facilitate the sharing of information about the links between data and literature.
