The Scholarly Communication Tree

grow healthy

A not-for-profit membership organization for scholarly publishing working to make content easy to find, cite, link, and assess.
Thank you!
Find content and data
New projects build on top of ideas, observations and previous research
Making research outputs available requires a vast and interconnected infrastructure
Persistent Identifiers (PIDs) are the foundation of infrastructure integration
Persistent Identifiers enable scholarly network

Citation of works (DOIs)
Contributor attribution (ORCID iDs)
Funder tracking (Open Funder Registry IDs)
Monitor Public Access (CHORUS)

International non-profit organisation
Promotes data publication and data reuse
More than 7 million DOIs assigned to datasets
30 members (national organisations, libraries, universities)
680 integrators (data centres, repositories, service providers)
Community driven and interoperable metadata schema
Supports the community through THOR
5300 publisher members, 1 member 1 vote
Metadata store of 80 million records
Persistent citation linking
Funder identifiers
Open Metadata API
Report and display corrections & retractions
Check manuscripts for similarities
Data about non-scholarly activity e.g. social
Underlying metadata reveals

Who funded it?
Has it been corrected or even retracted?
What trials have been carried out?
What am I permitted to do with it?
Uses stable metadata, best practices, open APIs, and partnerships to maximize interoperability & minimize expense, administrative burden
Tracks compliance on public Dashboards
Working with 6 federal funding agencies; exploring opportunities outside US
Non-profit organization with 46 members
Currently monitoring over 218,000 articles -- over 47,000 are publicly accessible
Global, nonprofit, community-driven organization supported by member organizations
Persistent digital identifiers to distinguish researchers from each other
Integrations create automated links between researchers and their activities/affiliations
Supports connections between identifiers for organizations, funding, outputs, and people
2M+ iDs, 450+ members, 200+ active integrations.
are increasingly requested/required by funders
ORCID and CHORUS support compliance with OA mandates
Crossref, DataCite and ORCID are sustainable or are building towards sustainability:
- Providing openly available tools and support
- Supporting wide adoption and integration
- Charging fees for services
- Making information freely accessible

Availability and persistence are key:
- Here today, here tomorrow
- Reliable infrastructure
- Transparent service for users
We are all committed to openness, diversity, and the core principles of privacy and researcher control:

- Using standard technologies and open source software
- Consulting the wider community on new and existing projects
- Supporting the best technical integrations
- Leveraging good quality metadata and description
- Providing training for all stakeholders
- Engaging with funding agencies to promote openness
- Promoting best practices on privacy and control
- Building a fully integrated scholarly communication environment

Infrastructure, services and development require a big investment from all stakeholders.

We collaborate to obtain the best out of them:
- Avoid duplication of work
- Centralise development effort
- Reduction of manual curation effort
- Enable analysis across platforms
Manuscript and data submission systems support:
- Integration or collection of ORCID iDs, which enables
- Retrieval of authors and contributors information
- Connect them unambiguosly if the submission gets published
- Textual similarity checks
- Collection of standardized funder information (Open Funder Reg)
Publication information can be automatically pushed to author ORCID record
Clear funding information combined with early DOI registration helps compliance with funder requirements
- Higher discoverability and visibility
- Better and more accurate citation of outputs
- Grant credit and track impact
- Provide funding and clinical trial information
- Enhance reproducibility
- Support consistent funding
- Reduce duplication
- Simplify reporting and analysis
- Connect platforms
- Verify compliance
Keeping track of research achievements is easier using persistent identifiers
You can point to your research outputs by providing a Crossref or DataCite DOI
Funder integrations can make applications easier
Publishers and repositories assign DOIs:
- Making publications and datasets citable
- Providing metadata to describe and connect them
Reuse, cite, get cited
Citations are one of the key metrics to evaluate research impact
Data citation and data reuse come as the next step
Final goals:
- closer collaboration
- better resource reuse
- reproducibility of results
- attribution and credit
- faster progress
- consistent funding
and connect them together!
DataCite's mission is to make research better by enabling people to find, share, use, and cite data.
A world where all who participate in research, scholarship, and innovation are uniquely identified and connected to their contributions across disciplines, borders, and time.
Advance sustainable public access to content reporting on funded research.
Maximize research impact by research widely accessible, discoverable, and reusable.
SHARE is building a free, open, metadata set about research and scholarly activities across their life cycle
Integrates multiple services and provides a centralised access point
Improves the researcher's experience by gathering, cleaning, linking, and enhancing metadata
CHORUS works
with federal funding
agencies in the US to
simplify compliance,
monitoring, and
dashboard reporting.
Planning to export the model outside the US
Submission systems integrate Open Funder Registry (11k funders)
Keep track - automatically!
Integration of APIs enables innovative services

Crossref, DataCite and ORCID worked together to develop ORCID Auto-Update

Every time a publication or a dataset gets a DOI assigned, the ORCID record of the authors receives an update

Two paths: informing the author via email or allowing automatic updates

CHORUS provides compliance tracking dashboards and services
Crossref text and data mining supports reuse

Metadata fully searchable and avilable via APIs
