Get involved in Scholix

Specific information on how to participate is available for DataCite members, institutional repositories and Crossref members.

To become part of the solution...

...join the RDA-WDS Scholarly Link Exchange (Scholix) Working Group.
You can help guide the continued development of the Scholix information ecosystem for dataliterature links by sharing your needs, expertise, use cases, and scenarios. Or simply stay in touch with the latest developments. The group meets monthly and new participants are always welcome. 

If you represent a research service with data–literature links you can also contribute them to other Scholix participants and collect links from them:

To become a contributor...

... feed your dataliterature link information to an existing Scholix hub using community standards.
This might include feeding dataliterature links to DataCite or CrossRef using their metadata schemas for describing links between data and literature. These hubs will exchange metadata with each other and with aggregator services to include your links in the comprehensive, global pool of information about dataliterature links. 
...become a hub and share your dataliterature link information using Scholix standards.
If you don’t have an existing Scholix hub to feed into, then your service can become a Scholix hub.  This means exposing your dataliterature links using the Scholix Schema and getting your service registered with the other Scholix hubs and aggregator service listed on the Scholix implementers webpage.

To become a consumer...

...get Scholix data using the open Scholexplorer API which allows you to retrieve dataliterature links related to resources, publishers, and data sources.
Some Scholix hubs are developing community specific query services. Enrich your database by adding the links in your query results into metadata you hold about these research objects.
