Scholars' individual and collective identities are a composite of their various research activities and how they relate to the work of others. Like a mosaic, to get a full picture, all the pieces have to be connected. Online, machine-readable metadata is helping to make that possible by facilitating research discovery and linking — and in journal publishing that starts at peer review.
The metadata collected from authors during peer review, and how it flows and is enriched through the research ecosystem, informs scholars' identities and levels of representation across disciplines. This webinar panel explores the roles of publishers and service providers in fostering metadata linking to promote more discoverable, diverse, and connected scholarly identities, including:
