This outreach meeting aims to explore how the research community can work together to help connect research and improve discoverability of content – publications, data and more.

Representatives from Crossref and Project THOR partners (ORCID, DataCite and the British Library) will introduce and provide updates on their initiatives and services (and how they work together). We will also have panelists from Polish institutions join us to discuss how the research landscape looks for them, and how they might work with some of the services discussed.

The day aims to provide a deeper understanding of foundational scholarly infrastructure, but also to have the opportunity to discuss how that can be used in publisher and researcher workflows.

We welcome editors, publishers, librarians, researchers, funders and the wider community to come share their thoughts and ideas. There will be lots of time for discussion and questions, so please join us and register here.
