Revolutionary Standards

"Revolutionary" may not be the first word that comes to mind when thinking about technical standards ... but consider how core standards can be for providing a lingua franca, interoperability between disparate, bespoke systems, or how adoption of an industry best practice can shave dollars off product or project development investments. This session, featuring representatives from across our community, will illuminate the role that standards play in keeping our industry humming and invite ideas for determining current gaps and participation in what standards may still be needed to support further innovation. The speakers will will make their nominations for technical standards that have advanced scholarly communication with the most distinction and describe motivations for their full adoption. They will list community priorities in various areas of work and discuss how a consensus development process, even when community members have different requirements, can lead to benefits for all. Attendees will learn about new and existing standards in scholarly communication and how they can participate in this important work.
