CCC is pleased to once again be participating in and speaking at the National Information Standards Organization’s (NISO) Plus 2023 Conference. The 2023 NISO Conference, a virtual event held on 14-16 February, will bring people together from across the global information community to share updates and participate in conversations about our shared challenges and opportunities. This year’s theme, “Global Conversations, Global Connections”, promises to look at the importance of metadata in the information standards space.
CCC is proud to be participating as both a Bit Sponsor and as a panelist in the day 1 session Designing a Metadata Fitness Program. Taking place at 11:00 AM ET on Tuesday, 14 February, the session will take a look at how metadata quality, data accuracy, and the ability to link data must all be dramatically improved if we are to meet the challenges ahead in the transformative drive toward open access and, ultimately, open science.
The session will feature Ginny Hendricks, Director, Member & Community Outreach, Crossref; Waylon Butler, Director, Data and Analytics, AIP Publishing; Arjan Schalken, Program Manager, UKB consortium; Laura Cox, Senior Director, Publishing Industry Data, CCC; and Christopher Kenneally, Senior Director, Marketing, CCC. Based on research conducted by CCC that identified six exercises to raise metadata quality levels, panelists will share how they overcame specific data challenges for completeness; consistency; accuracy; currency; redundancy; and reliability.
