Unlocking socioeconomic potential through global collaboration - connecting researchers to research output - Discussion

As Team Science and global collaborations expand, the metadata about the research teams, including affiliation, funder, grant, and specific contribution information, will be a critical part of measuring the socioeconomic impact of open research as well as enabling equity and inclusion in research funding. Although there are mechanisms in place to tag research output with critical identifiers such as DOIs, ORCIDs, OpenFunder IDs, RORs and Ringgolds, the collection and validation of these identifiers remains inconsistent, hampering the industry’s ability to connect researchers to research.
Who is responsible for collecting and validating researcher information? What is the role of publishers or research and submission platforms vs. research institutions or funders? What organizations or activities will drive dramatic improvements to the accuracy and persistence of this data and how? What parts of open access publishing, open science, and DEI will fail when this researcher data is subpar?
This panel will bring together industry leaders to discuss the infrastructure that exists today, what is still needed, and how it can facilitate global collaboration and the measurement of its impact; efficient and cost-effective OA publishing; and improved research assessment, including credit for and measurement of research contributions.
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!
