Metadata: Mendeley Data Adopts Google Science Datasets Standards
From the Mendeley Blog:
Mendeley Data is pleased to announce that we’ve adopted the new Google Science Datasets markup standard for datasets.
For the non-computer science buffs amongst us, this means we describe our datasets in a structured way recognised by Google – which helps Google to index our datasets, and makes them more readily available in their search results.
This also means Google could eventually show datasets in a special way within search results, perhaps by presenting a “rich snippet” for a dataset like the example for a research article below. This makes them more visible and easier to scan by readers.
