Scholix/Data Usage Metrics WG joint session: from data citation to data metrics
Collaborative session notes: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1W1iJRhikDADhV0GiI2NyVjo_8pk1cVlo7WlY3rrmLBU/edit?usp=sharing
Introductions and framing (group chairs/co-chairs): why have we combined these two topics?
We'll have guest presenters join us to share details on their implementations, their perspectives, and other pertinent information on Data Usage Metrics, Scholix, and data citation.
Motivation for Optica Publishing Group (formerly OSA) to be compliant with Scholix: Scott Dineen (Optica)
Best practice and initiatives in this space
ARDC article/data linking case study plans: Adrian Burton, Natasha Simons (ARDC)
Data Usage Metrics
Placing data citations in context: A bibliometrics perspective: Kathleen Gregory (ScholCommLab)
Discussion: the future of Scholix - where do we go from here?
Suggested topics, but feel free to bring your own:
Expanding Scholix to software
Revisit the model
To update the community and engage in discussion on progress being made on article/data linking by numerous stakeholders, developments in developing community-led data metrics and how these initiatives complement each other.
Short Group Status (Scholix)
The working group is in maintenance mode, but continues to meet regularly in monthly calls and in RDA plenaries. The focus of the group’s work continues to be on adoption of the working group recommendations.
Short Group Status (Data Usage Metrics)
The working group continues to remain in limbo with RDA with a finished recommendation.
Data Usage Metrics: The WG has produced a recommendation in consideration with RDA for endorsement. The recommendation is focused on community prioritization of normalizing data usage counts according to the COUNTER Code of Practice for Research Data.
Scholix: 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. The group is in maintenance mode since 2019 and continues to work on Scholix adoption with repositories, publishers and other industry groups.
