Continuing Resources Standards Forum

Sunday, June 28, 2015
10:30 am to 11:30 am, US/Pacific

Several new and emerging standards efforts will be discussed, including Altmetrics.

NISO Alternative Assessment Metrics (Altmetrics) Initiative:

In June 2013, NISO was awarded a Sloan Foundation grant to explore standards and/or best practices related to a new suite of potential assessment metrics such as social media references and potential assessment criteria for non-traditional research outputs such as data sets. In Phase 1 of the project, 3 in-person meetings as well as 30 in-person interviews were held October 2013-January 2014 and resulted in a June 6, 2014 white paper outlining a list of potential action items, followed by a community input survey in August 2014. As part of Phase 2, NISO’s Business Information Topic Committee approved a work item to advance action items through the creation of NISO working groups to develop standards covering these areas. Nettie Lagace, Associate Director for Programs at NISO, will provide us with an overview and update on this initiative.

Proposal for Exchanging Serial Content (PESC):

This project is creating a NISO Recommended Practice to describe a packaging specification to be used for exchange and archiving of serial publications. A draft was available for public comment through December 5, 2014. The PESC Working Group is currently reviewing the comments in order to develop a recommendation for protocols for defining the rules to be used to create a package of serial content. Our speakers will be Amy Kirchhoff, Archive Service Product Manager, ITHAKA/JSTOR/Portico, and Marti Heyman, Executive Director, Metadata Standards and Services, Global Product Technology, Cengage Learning.
