All of those who are involved in scholarly communications have the same end
goal: to conduct, facilitate and/or communicate research, and have that
research be discoverable. Whether they’re funders, authors, preprint
servers, publishers, libraries, repositories; or the numerous tools seeking
to add value through search, discovery, annotation, or analyses; so many of
these organizations contribute along the way but often important details
get mistyped, misrepresented, or missed out entirely.

We all face the same problem—how to include as much useful information as
possible. This includes basic information but also license information,
funding/grant data, ORCID iDs, organization IDs, clinical trial data,
and—along the way—corrections and retractions. How can we manage the
efficient entry and use of clean and complete metadata, in a way that can
grow and permeate through other systems usable by all in the scholarly
communications chain?

We envision a future with better metadata, not only increasing
discoverability of content, but also benefiting reputation management,
attribution, discoverability, efficiency, data reproducibility and
reusability, in addition to future services that don’t yet exist!

A group of organizations (including Crossref, DataCite, ORCID, OpenAIRE,
California Digital Library, Wikimedia, OCLC among others) have come
together to rally the community around this critical issue in scholarly
communications: sharing richer metadata.

Metadata 2020 is a collaboration that advocates richer, connected and
reusable metadata for all research outputs with the understanding that:

   - Richer metadata fuels discoverability and innovation;
   - Connected metadata bridges the gaps between systems and communities;
   - Reusable metadata eliminates duplication of effort.

We seek input from librarians, publishers, aggregators, service providers,
funders, data repositories and researchers, to share user stories and
insights about the journey that metadata takes, and to help prioritize
goals and tactics for Metadata 2020. Metadata 2020 is a campaign that is
bigger than just one organization or sector, but a collective
responsibility shared by us all.

This workshop invites contributions from specialists in the librarian
community to help advance the library element of a metadata maturity model.
This element will contribute to a larger maturity model in service of the
wider scholarly communications community.
