Concurrent 3F: Everything’s New Under the Sun: How New Standards and Best Practices Will Affect Your Life
This session will present the latest updates for several consensus-driven, community-based standards and recommended practices–published by the National Information Standards Organization (NISO) and other organizations–crucial to the SSP audience. Projects to be reported include: the NISO Altmetrics Initiative; the Access & License Indicators Recommended Practice; Presentation and Identification of E-Journals (PIE-J); Project CRediT (Contributor Roles Taxonomy); and the Transfer Code of Practice. Stakeholders representing different expertise and viewpoints from publishers, libraries, system providers and other intermediaries, and users serve on working groups to study a particular area and distill possibilities into practical outputs which match the available technologies, practices, and skillsets of the target recipients. All of these projects are intended to increase information sharing among users in the scholarly publishing ecosystem through effective definitions, creation, and transfer of different types of data. Come learn how you can participate!
