    The SKG-IF description available on presents a framework adapted to linking people, organization, grants, products… The examples seems to be driving by products like journal articles or datasets (registered in repositories like Zenodo). The datasource and venue seems also adapted to scholarly journals and repositories. In some communities (Earth sciences, astronomy), the data are mainly available through well defined services (APIs). Describing such access services with schemas like DCAT is possible, but I have difficulties to see how this would fit into this framework.
