Jennifer Kemp

Jennifer Kemp is Head of Business Development and works primarily with organizations of all kinds that use Crossref metadata. Prior to Crossref, she was most recently Senior Manager of Policy and External Relations, North America for Springer Nature, where she served previously as eBooks Product Manager and Library Marketing Team Manager. Her experience in scholarly publishing began with her work as a Publication Manager at HighWire Press, where she had a variety of nonprofit and commercial publisher clients. Jennifer’s perspective on the industry remains influenced by her years as a librarian, at IBM Research. She has experience in most librarian roles, but was focused mainly on electronic resources acquisitions and management. Her career experiences have exposed her to the idiosyncrasies of publishing in the breadth of science and humanities disciplines and she still enjoys explaining to librarians what life is like on the other side.

Good, better, best. Never let it rest.

Best practices seem to be having a moment. In the ten years since the Books Advisory Group first created a best practice guide for books, the community beyond Crossref has developed or updated at least 17 best practice resources, as collected here by the Metadata 2020 initiative. (Full disclosure: I co-chair its Best Practices group.)

Event Data enters Beta

We’ve been talking about it at events, blogging about it on our site, living it, breathing it, and even sometimes dreaming about it, and now we are delighted to announce that Crossref Event Data has entered Beta.

Outreach Day DC. Next Up? You Tell Us

Rallying the community is a key Crossref role. Sometimes this means collaborating on new initiatives but it is also an ongoing process, a cornerstone of our outreach efforts. Part of rallying the community is bringing people together, literally, in a series of outreach days around the globe. It means we encourage dialog with us and among members and non-publisher affiliates. We want to hear from the community and we hope to facilitate conversations in it.
