Brief introduction describing the activities and scope of the group: 

The working group has generated a Scholix metadata schema, has helped implement this schema in multiple Scholix hubs and other infrastructure providers, and has built a community that provides data citation services. 

Short Group Status: 

The group is in maintenance mode since 2019 and continues to work on Scholix adoption with repositories, publishers and other industry groups, along with work with the software community to explore expanding the schema to support software linking and citation. We ran a joint session with other related interest groups at the previous plenary to explore this.
