LIVE20 online, November 10, 2020
Crossref turned 20 in 2020 and despite the challenges in the world lately, it felt like a natural milestone to take our annual meeting, LIVE20, online. It meant that we could welcome even more people than usual, from the 140 countries where our members are based, to hear the results of our board election as well as some updates from our team.
Hosted by Rosa Morais Clark, LIVE20 event took place on November 10th at 15:00 UTC (universal coordinated time). Here are some of the outputs of the full session that includes:
- Ed Pentz gave an overview of “the big picture” including the milestone board motions in July 2020 that commit to the collaborative development of open infrastructure for the benefit of the whole community.
- Ginny Hendricks gave an update from the Outreach team including technical support, trends such as handling ~220 new members every month, where new members are coming from lately (Africa!), and some special programs and projects such as grants.
- Bryan Vickery introduced the Product team and what they’ve been working on and planning. Featuring ease-of-use and simplifying-services!
- Lucy Ofiesh provides an overview of the sustainability model of Crossref, the latest financial data, and describes the make-up of the board and some key governance matters. Lucy then goes on to announce the results of the 2020 board election. The new board term starts March 2021.

LIVE19 in Amsterdam, November 13-14, 2019
The theme for LIVE19––approaching the 20th anniversary of Crossref––was
Have your say and it included an afternoon of scene-setting talks from Ed on our strategy and trends, and Ginny on research into the value of Crossref. They also set out some thoughts in the blog post A turning point is a time for reflection. We also heard flash talks on that same subject of the value of Crossref, in a session entitled “In their own words” from: Todd Toler of Wiley; Catriona Maccallum of Hindawi; Anna Danilova of Ukrinformauka; Christian Gutknecht of the Swiss National Science Foundation; and Ludo Waltman of CWTS at Leiden University.
Roundtable group workshops on the second day were designed around an extended annual report as a “fact file” which shows data and trends alongside key questions.
Christian also wrote up his takeaways from LIVE19 (in German), as did Ludo who includes three top recommendations for Crossref from a science studies perspective.

Please note there will be no in-person event around the November 2020 annual election, which will instead be announced virtually. We want to take stock of the feedback from LIVE19, gather more from others throughout 2020, and following up on the value research outputs we’ll be ready to report progress in 2021. Please check to see if there will be a LIVE local near you instead.
LIVE18 in Toronto, November 13-14, 2018
The theme of LIVE18 was `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.

LIVE17 in Singapore, November 14-15, 2017
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.
