CrossMark: Standardizing Funding Information in Scholarly Journal Articles 2010 CrossRef Annual Meeting CrossMark: Standardizing Funding Information in Scholarly Journal Articles 2010 CrossRef Annual Meeting Presentation Transcript

  • CrossMark: Standardizing Funding Information in Scholarly Journal Articles
    CrossRef Annual General Meeting
    November 16, 2010
    H. Frederick Dylla
    Executive Director and CEO
    American Institute of Physics
  • Key points
    Acknowledgement to CrossReffor important contributions to the deliberations of the US Scholarly Publishing Roundtable
    CrossRef can continue to contribute to public debates on access and interoperability through wide adoption of CrossMarkand inclusion of funding agency attribution.
  • Scholarly Publishing Roundtable
    Convened in 2009 by the Committee on Science and Technology of the United States House of Representatives, in coordination with the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP)
    “to explore and develop an appropriate consensus regarding access to and preservation of federally funded research information that addresses the needs of all interested parties.”
    Issued report on January 12, 2010
  • Follow-up by US Congress: public access language in the America COMPETES Reauthorization Bill
    • Directs OSTP to establish a “working group” under the NSTC to “coordinate Federal science agency research and policies related to dissemination and …stewardship of results of unclassified research including digital data and peer reviewed publications…”
    • “solicit input from, and collaborate with, non-Federal stakeholders”
    • “work with international counterparts to maximize interoperability”
    • Note: not a list of specific mandates
    • Continues deliberative process with stakeholders begun under Roundtable
  • CrossRef’s contributions
    CrossRef’s achievements and plans were essential input to the Roundtable’s deliberations and recommendations:
    Interoperability standards to promote access (DOI’s)
    Version of Record
    - clear notation is needed to electronically watermark the
    VoR to preserve the integrity of the scholarly record
    - CrossMark provides this tool for publishers (and the community)
  • Funding agency credit
    CrossRef members can provide an additional valuable service to authors, readers, and the agencies funding scholarship by adding the funding agent(s) to the standard metadata
    Such data is presently inconsistently provided
    A publisher led initiative (through CrossRef) for consistent provision of such data would be viewed favorably by funders
    CrossMark provides a simple field where such data can be entered by the publisher/author
    Value added providers of such information would not suffer
    (example: full and free available of US Patent Office data)
  • Answering needs
    • Funder acknowledgment often condition of the award to grant-holders
    • However, no industry standard or guidance
    • Many publishers include provision in XML
    • Funders unable to consolidate or evaluate research output
  • Staying relevant
    • Providing relevant information to readers
    • Fostering transparency in the published research output
    • Facilitating funder connections
    • Enabling universal access to funding information
  • Benefits for researchers
  • Benefits for research funders
  • Benefits for publishers
  • CrossRef Annual General Meeting
  • Next Steps
    Technical details have to worked out
    Development of CrossRef standard for funding agency information
    Encouragement of adoption by publishers and authors
  • Acknowledgments
    Roundtable members
