The Metadata 2020 project was established in 2017. Its goal was to facilitate collaboration between various stakeholders in scholarly communications in order to achieve improvements in metadata. The reasoning was that improved metadata would enhance discoverability, encourage new services and create efficiencies, with the ultimate goal of accelerating scholarly research for the benefit of society. As we approach 2020, the many outputs of the project are taking shape.

During this workshop we will share several of the project’s key outputs focusing on important scholarly metadata questions that affect discovery and access to resources. The workshop will include interactive exercises, in which participants will explore how we apply the project's findings in order to create innovation, impact and incentives for better metadata.

The project outputs that will be covered in the workshop include:
  • Metadata principles - what does it mean to have 'richer metadata'?
  • Metadata personas - who are the key players that will follow the principles to ensure the benefits?
  • Metadata literature review - how are academics thinking about metadata and characterizing its effectiveness?
  • Metadata best practices - what practices are in use today?
  • Metadata concepts, terms and schema - where is there overlap and how do existing schema map to each other?
