Academic publishers today strive to keep pace with a rapid evolution in how readers discover and evaluate scholarly content. Indexing routines change regularly for open-web search engines, like Google. New researcher tools, like Mendeley and ReadCube, present new challenges in ensuring scholarly material is findable via all the possible channels used by students, authors, practitioners, and other consumers. Standards organizations, who govern routines for information delivery and metadata exchanges, are struggling to keep up with the pace of this change.
