There is only one way to avoid criticism: do nothing, say nothing, and be nothing.
With a smaller group than usual, we’re dedicating this year’s annual meeting to hear what you value about Crossref. Which initiatives would you put first and/or last? Where would you have us draw the line between mission and ambition? What is “core” for you? How could/should we adapt for the future in order to meet your needs?
There won’t be any plenary talks about trends in scholarly communications, but instead workshop-style activities to help hone our strategy, do some scenario planning, and prioritize goals together, as a community.
Research is global, and supporting a diverse global community is a challenge. Come and have your say.
How good is your metadata?where Crossref staff and invited speakers inspired us with their metadata tales of woe and wonder. It was two full days packed with a mixture of plenary sessions, the results of our members’ newly elected board members, and interactive activities.
We focused on the theme of
Metadata + Relations + Infrastructure = Context. We had our fullest program yet, with the broadest representation yet - researchers, editors, journal and book people, publishing execs, librarians, and funders. We talked a lot about relationships: between metadata; between research outputs; and between the scholarly community.
Get a flavor of the event by listening to three of the most popular talks from 2016. The podcast also includes some of our guest’s comments about the talks, including Crossref’s Geoffrey Bilder on our plans for a new organization identifier registry, Dario Taraborelli from the Wikimedia Foundation, and April Hathcock of New York University.
