Like evidence-based medicine, data-driven decision-making in publishing seems a no-brainer. But just as many doctors have long trusted their intuitions, so have scholarly publishers. Doing so in 2023, however, may get your license revoked in both professions. The proposed panel discussion will drive a stakeholder dialogue addressing metadata management and what industry participants see as the solution to managing metadata. The audience will gain an appreciation for how proper application of quality data can open a 360-degree-view of the research ecosystem to address important concerns of sustainability, compliance, and access.
The panel has almost completely changed for this session, but the new panel will be bringing some interesting and international insights.
