Session 1D: The Gift that Keeps on Giving: Metadata & Persistent Identifiers Through the Research & Publication Cycle
When properly applied, metadata feeds into future endeavors. The importance of metadata is well known to publishers, but it is not always carried through the scholarly communications supply chain. So, in this session we have brought together success stories and cautionary tales from different stages of scholarly communications. Metadata and persistent identifiers smooth workflows and transitions between systems, enable analytics and discovery, and position all stakeholders for greater insight in to research activity as well as business development. We bring together stakeholders, such as funders, workflow vendors, metadata specialists, and publishers, to address the values and potential we can realize thanks to metadata. Practically speaking, we will hear stories of success and gain insight into the challenges and barriers which are preventing us from using metadata and persistent IDs most effectively.
