CHORUS Forum: Improving Scholarly Publishing Metadata

29 September 2022 – Free online meeting
11:00 AM – 1:00 PM EDT

Metadata that is omitted or incorrectly entered during a scholarly publishing workflow can have serious consequences for the findability, accessibility, interoperability, and reusability of that item. Likewise, transmitting incorrect metadata to others through publication or other means can impact the larger ecosystem including transformative agreements and reporting.

This CHORUS Forum will address how funders, research administrators, librarians and publishers can work together to improve scholarly publishing metadata.
