Data2Paper Scholix Integration

Introduction to Data2paper ‘Data2Paper’ is a ‘one-click’ process to streamline the data paper publication workflow. Metadata about a dataset (together with a link to the dataset itself) are transferred from a data repository, via a cloud-based helper app which allows the addition of methodological detail, to a relevant publisher as a data paper submission. The app leverages DataCite DOI and ORCID functionality to avoid data re-entry, saving time and avoiding errors. If accepted and published, su...
