Thanks to the enthusiasm of our global planning committee and many of those who submitted session proposals, as well as the participants in the first NISO Plus Forum in September 2022, metadata is THE hot topic at NISO Plus 2023—which is great for NISO, since so much of our work is about developing standardized metadata and/or using it in a standardized way.
This year’s conference features an entire track dedicated to the topic, including sessions on metadata in the creative industries, communicating the value of metadata, multi-language metadata — not to mention, Metadata Greatest Hits: Music Through the Ages! There are also numerous sessions in the other tracks, and speakers include representatives from PID organizations including Crossref, DataCite, ORCID, RAiD, and ROR, as well as PID experts from libraries, publishers, vendors, and other organizations.
For example, come hear:
- Pablo de Castro (Strathclyde University), Ulrich Herb (scidecode), and Jessica Parland von Essen (CSC IT Center for Science) discuss Risks and Trust in Pursuit of a Well-functioning Persistent Identifier Infrastructure for Research with Gaelle Bequet of ISSN
- Matt Buys (DataCite), Amanda French (ROR), Ted Haberman (Metadata Game Changers), and others on PID Innovations and Developments in Scholarly Infrastructure with Melroy Almeida of the Australian Access Federation/ORCID Australia consortium
- Jessica Clark (Erudit), Ana Heredia (Heredia & Viggiani Consulting), Maria Johnsson (Lund University), and Matthew Ragucci (Wiley) sharing their Perspectives on Metadata Quality and Completeness with Jason Friedman (Canadian Research Knowledge Network)
- And so much more!
