The goal of the InFoLiS project is to connect research data and publications. Links between data and literature are created automatically by means of text mining and made available as Linked Open Data (LOD) for seamless integration into different retrieval systems. This enables scientists to directly access information about corresponding research data in a literature information system, and, vice versa, it is possible to directly find different interpretations and analyses in the literature of the same research data. In our talk, we will describe our methods for generating the links and give insight into the Linked Data infrastructure including the services we are currently building. Most importantly, we will detail how our solutions can be used by other institutions and invite all interested participants to discuss with us their ideas and thoughts on the requirements for these services to ensure broad interoperability with existing systems and infrastructures. InFoLiS is a joint project by the GESIS – Leibniz Institute for the Social Sciences, Cologne, Mannheim University Library, and Mannheim University supported by a grant from the DFG – German Research Foundation.
