Baltimore, MD, October 27, 2021: The National Information Standards
Organization (NISO) today announced that its Voting Members have approved
work on a new project, Integrating Publisher and Repository Workflows to
Improve Research Data-Article Links.

With widespread support for open data from many government entities,
publishers, funders, and other stakeholders, research data is increasingly
being deposited, published, and cited. However, there are still a number of
barriers — technical as well as cultural. This new project aims to address
some of the technical issues by making linking between data and other
research objects with their associated literature both easier and more
consistent. The new NISO Working Group on Integrating Publisher and
Repository Workflows to Improve Research Data-Article Links will develop a
Recommended Practice for how publisher and repository systems should
interoperate, so that link creation happens automatically.

Building on industry efforts such as the RDA/WDS Scholarly Link Exchange
JATS4R Recommendations on Data Citations
<> and Data Availability Statements
<>, this project aims to
define the information required at each end of the bidirectional link
between datasets and other research works, including what notifications are
needed. The goal is to create a Recommended Practice that platform
providers of all sizes can aspire to meet.

The Working Group’s remit will include defining the required metadata,
building a terminology of events and of citation/link types for
data/article relationships, and agreeing what information needs to be
exchanged and in which direction.

“We are delighted that our Voting Members have approved this new project,”
said Nettie Lagace, NISO’s Associate Executive Director. “It was one of the
top ideas to emerge from this year’s NISO Plus conference, and it’s
exciting that our community’s enthusiasm for improving publisher and
repository workflows is now becoming a reality.”
