    Meeting objectives
    Over the past year, the RDA/WDS Scholix Working Group has been actively working to expand its support beyond article/data linking to encompass software. 
    In the communities represented in the group, repositories, publishers, and Scholix hubs such as Crossref, DataCite and OpenAIRE, we’re seeing a growth in the acknowledgement and citation of the software that underpins and supports published research. And like data, we see software as an equivalent output and want to make sure that it can be identified, linked to, cited and rewarded alongside related research. 
    The group has been working with the wider community to extend the newly-published schema to support software, via the working group, other meetings and a variety of presentations. We want to showcase this work in our session, share insights from publishers, Scholix hubs, repositories and others in the community about their plans to better support software linking and citation, hear what different stakeholders are doing already, and continue to gather feedback to support adoption of this evolving standard. 

    Share published Scholix schema expansion to support software including examples, trends, limitations

    Provide guidance for use and implementation of the schema to support best practice across the Crossref and DataCite communities and discuss what more we can do

    Discuss how software policies can support better linking and citation

    Look at existing tools/data/insights and discuss new adoption opportunities and strategies

    Please indicate at least (3) three breakout slots that would suit your meeting.
