September/October 2020 newsletter



Please sign up for next week's LIVE20, our annual meeting and board election, and a reminder to please vote for your board candidates. Also in this edition, Rachael discusses Crossref's vision of The Research Nexus on the EASE blog; guest bloggers Ludo Waltman and Bianca Kramer announce the Initiative for Open Abstracts (I4OA); and we invite you to submit a proposal for PIDaplooza by Friday, November 6.

We hope you are keeping well lately. 

Your vote is important

Our 2020 board election is now open. We have a diverse slate of candidates this year so, members, vote! Please and thank you :-)  Broad governance is critical for Crossref––our members elect the board and it's an important aspect of our principles that you vote for your preferred candidate in each tier (small and large) who can help shape our future direction. It's one member, one vote so each member gets an equal say. Voting ends November 10 as LIVE20 begins.

Hurrah! PIDapalooza submission due date is extended

PIDapalooza is a the open festival of persistent identifiers. Yes, really. It's all about PIDs, metadata, and open scholarly infrastructure. This year it will be held in January 2021 as an online 24-hour rave; a party where interactive and music-themed sessions and wacky presenters are encouraged!  We’re seeking proposals for short, interactive sessions about what you’re doing with persistent identifiers––this is an opportunity for you to share your work.
