Make your datasets deposited in the SMU Research Data Repository appear in Scopus!
You did the hard work of making your research data open on our new SMU Research Data Repository (RDR) and wondering what this does for you?
You will be glad to know that your dataset in the SMU RDR is not only indexed in the Google Dataset Search but also may appear in Scopus.
Take the dataset entitled Data from: Identifying latent structures in panel data that was deposited into our SMU Research Data Repository (RDR).
It is a dataset that is cited in the article - Identifying Latent Structures in Panel Data in the journal - Econometrica and from the data repository page you can link to the article page.
However, the link goes both ways as well. When you search for the article - Identifying Latent Structures in Panel Data in Scopus, Scopus is able to detect the dataset in our repository and link to the dataset on our repository in the “Related research data” box on the Scopus article page, increasing the discoverability of your dataset.
The linkage between dataset and literature is made possible by Scopus and SMU Research Data Repository support of the Scholix protocol. Besides Scopus, other systems that currently support this protocol includes EuropePMC and Dryad.
