*A significant consensus
*Support for communities of practice and implementation

Meeting agenda

An over view of Scholix
Core information for describing a link between data and literature: can we leverage schema.org?
Supporting third parties to develop services


This meeting is for those interested in a global "system" for knowing about the links between literature and data, eg journal publishers, data centres, repositories and service providers. 
If you are involved in a research service that holds information about the links between data and literature, we'd love to talk to you about how your information can be included and how we might be able to complement what you know!
You could read up about the Scholix initiative on our website: www.scholix.org or have a look at the demonstrator portal, the data literature interlinking service: https://dliservice.research-infrastructures.eu/#/
