To read a map of the scholarly research ecosystem, stakeholders should keep a data compass handy.

The guiding role of metadata in an increasingly complex scholarly research ecosystem will be the focus of a CCC panel discussion at the London Book Fair as part of the Research & Scholarly Publishing Forum on Thursday, April 20.

Daniel Shanahan Publishing Director, PLOS, and Michaela Atherley, Director of Editorial Operations – Open Research, Taylor & Francis will join myself along with Dr. Jose Salm of the Federal University of Santa Catarina, Brazil.

In February at the Researcher to Reader Conference in London, Dr. Jose Salm shared his experiences on the role of persistent identifiers (PIDs) in development of The Lattes Platform, a database “maintained by the Brazilian federal government to manage information on science, technology, and innovation related to individual researchers and institutions working in Brazil.”

“We are trying to connect with different data sources, mainly the theses and dissertations that are published in Brazil and outside, and now we’re starting to work and reengineer the whole Lattes platform,” Dr. Salm said.
