  • Pub and Academia traditional allies----last decade acrimonious debate---exacerbated by economy
    How long can we alienate our best customers? We need to change the tone and nature of this debate
  • CrossMark: Standardizing Funding Information in Scholarly Journal Articles 2010 CrossRef Annual Meeting

    1. 1. H. Frederick Dylla Executive Director and CEO American Institute of Physics CrossMark: Standardizing Funding Information in Scholarly Journal Articles CrossRef Annual General Meeting London,UK November 16, 2010
    2. 2. CrossRef Annual General Meeting November 16, 2010 Key points • Acknowledgement to CrossRef for 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 CrossMark and inclusion of funding agency attribution.
    3. 3. CrossRef Annual General Meeting November 16, 2010 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 http://science.house.gov/press/PRArticle.aspx?NewsID=2710
    4. 4. CrossRef Annual General Meeting November 16, 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
    5. 5. CrossRef Annual General Meeting November 16, 2010 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)
    6. 6. CrossRef Annual General Meeting November 16, 2010 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)
    7. 7. CrossRef Annual General Meeting November 16, 2010 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
    8. 8. CrossRef Annual General Meeting November 16, 2010 Staying relevant Providing relevant information to readers Fostering transparency in the published research output Facilitating funder connections Enabling universal access to funding information
    9. 9. CrossRef Annual General Meeting November 16, 2010 Benefits for researchers Transparency Clear guidance Satisfy funder requirements Consistency
    10. 10. CrossRef Annual General Meeting November 16, 2010 Benefits for research funders Compliance Monitoring Evaluation Consistency
    11. 11. CrossRef Annual General Meeting November 16, 2010 Benefits for publishers Service Transparency Funder connection Consistency
    12. 12. CrossRef Annual General Meeting
    13. 13. CrossRef Annual General Meeting November 16, 2010 Next Steps • Technical details have to worked out • Development of CrossRef standard for funding agency information • Encouragement of adoption by publishers and authors
    14. 14. CrossRef Annual General Meeting November 16, 2010 Acknowledgments • Roundtable members • Ed Pentz and Geoff Bilder (CrossRef) • Financial support of Roundtable by AAU and PSP-AAP
