The role of the information community in ensuring that information is authoritative - Discussion

How much of a responsibility does the information community have to ensuring that the content we provide is authoritative? Preprints are a great way to make early research results available, but it's not always clear that those results are not yet thoroughly vetted. Peer review - a key element of scholarly publication - can help, but it's far from foolproof. Retractions are another important tool, but most retracted research is still all too readily available. What can and should we be doing to safeguard the integrity of the content being created, disseminated, and used?
The NISO Plus conference brings people together from across the global information community to share updates and participate in conversations about our shared challenges and opportunities. The focus is on identifying concrete next steps to improve information flow and interoperability, and help solve existing and potential future problems. Please join us to help address the key issues facing our community of librarians, publishers, researchers, and more — today and tomorrow!
