WG RDA/WDS Publishing Data Services RDA 8th Plenary meeting

Meeting title Toward an open global information ecosystem for data-literature links

Please give a short introduction describing the activities and the scope of the group

The Publishing Data Services working group has been active for the last 18 months working on a vision for an open information ecosystem for data-literature links and a comprehensive data-literature linking service.
The working group completed and established a demonstrator service <http://dliservice.research-infrastructures.eu/#/> operated by OpenAire and a number of enabling infrastructure elements developed by DataCite and CrossRef <http://eventdata.crossref.org/> <https://eventdata.datacite.org/>.
The group included input from a broad number of data services and publishers some of whom established a significant demonstrator pool of links <http://dliservice.research-infrastructures.eu/#/datasources>.
The working group has also produced an interoperability framework and hub model to enable the global aggregation of the information <www.scholix.org>.
