While we wish we could be together in person to celebrate the fifth PIDapalooza, there’s an upside to moving it online: now everyone can participate in the universe’s best PID party! With 24 hours of non-stop PID programming, you’ll be able to come to the party no matter where you happen to be.
Send us your ideas for #PIDapalooza21 Now is your chance to share your work in the #PIDapalooza21 spotlight!
This blog was initially posted on the European Association of Science Editors (EASE) blog: “EASE Council Post: Rachael Lammey on the Research Nexus”. EASE President Duncan Nicholas accurately introduces it as a whole lot of information and insights about metadata and communication standards into one post…
I was given a wide brief to decide on the topic of my EASE blog, so I thought I’d write one that tries to encompass everything - I’ll explain what I mean by that.
This year, Crossref’s Nominating Committee assumed the task of developing a slate of candidates to fill six open board seats. We are grateful that in the midst of a challenging year, we received over 70 expressions of interest from all around the world, a 40% increase from last year’s response. It was an extraordinary pool of applicants and a testament to the strength of our membership community.
There are six seats open for election (two large, four small), and the Nominating Committee is pleased to present the following slate.
The Initiative for Open Abstracts (I4OA) launched this week. The initiative calls on scholarly publishers to make the abstracts of their publications openly available. More specifically, publishers that work with Crossref to register DOIs for their publications are requested to include abstracts in the metadata they deposit in Crossref. These abstracts will then be made openly available by Crossref. 39 publishers have already agreed to join I4OA and to open their abstracts.
For those disposing publishers who wish to transfer a journal title that has been acquired by another publisher, we have created a simple three-step process to transfer and confirm the ownership transfer of your journal.
Please note that the Transfer title tool will transfer the journal title and all existing DOIs published within that journal from the disposing publisher to the publisher acquiring ownership. If you do not wish to transfer all existing DOIs as part of your title transfer, please contact our Support team to assist with your title transfer.
Log in to Metadata Manager, and navigate to the Home page of the journal you’d like to transfer. From the journal’s Home page, click Action, and select Transfer title from the menu.
On the Transfer title screen, confirm the From and Destination details (using the publisher and DOI prefix boxes). When you’re ready, select Transfer to initiate the ownership change.
In addition to transferring the journal title, the Transfer title tool will transfer all existing DOIs affiliated with the journal from the disposing publisher to the acquiring publisher. Once the transfer is processed, we will use the technical contact we have on file to email the acquiring publisher to notify them of the transfer. It can take up to 24 hours for the title transfer to be reflected in Metadata Manager.
