Google Scholar & DataCite DOIs

Does anyone know what the current status of DataCite DOIs & Google Scholar is? Specifically: will anything assigned a DataCite DOI be indexed and discoverable in Scholar searches without further work? Or is Scholar only indexing known repositories, and picking up DOIs incidentally as part of the metadata it harvests?

I know that the indexing for Google Dataset Search is separate and definitely picks up anything where resourceTypeGeneral is set to Dataset (but nothing else). I just tried searching and couldn’t find any obvious similar information for Google Scholar.

Cheers!

@jezcope @amyhodge We’re not aware of datasets being integrated into Scholar, however, it came up as a future possibility during Natasha Noy’s webinar back in 2018 Google Dataset Search Webinar - everything you always wanted to know about Google Dataset Search . Looking into whether there’s any progress/news and will keep you posted.
