Cenveo Publisher Services Joins Metadata 2020 Service Provider and Platform Group
A New Collaboration for Richer, Connected, and Reusable Metadata in Scholarly Communications
Columbia, MD—January 10, 2018—Cenveo Publisher Services, a division of Cenveo, Inc. (NASDAQ: CVO), has joined the Metadata 2020 initiative with the goal of improving the quality and interoperability of metadata between publishers, aggregators, service providers, librarians, funders and researchers. Representatives from publishing service providers, platforms, software companies, standards organizations, copyright licensing services and the open access community formed the Service Provider and Platform Group to discuss and document the metadata workflow and create clear guidelines for improvement.
Metadata is the backbone of content distribution and discovery. Parsing the unique metadata needs of the community and documenting the holistic publishing landscape will contribute to a useful and meaningful metadata ecosystem.
“There is a real difference between ‘valid metadata’ and ‘quality metadata,’” explains Marianne Calilhanna, director of marketing at Cenveo Publisher Services and participant of Metadata 2020. “Good metadata for researchers is quite different and more than just the valid copyright metadata. It is about quality, scope, and usability; this group aims to educate and provide guidance across all players in the scholarly publishing community.”
A committed group of people from all over the world has joined forces to form Metadata 2020 with the goal of rallying and supporting the community around the critical issue of sharing richer metadata for research communications. Metadata is a strategic issue and not an operational after-thought.
