NISO Webinar

Ensuring Trust in the Scholarly Record: How Libraries and Publishers support Research Integrity
Wednesday, June 12, 2024, 11:00am - 12:00pm (Eastern Standard Time, US & Canada

In the face of growing questions around research integrity in what is being termed an Age of Misinformation, several strategies that address trust in the scholarly record are being developed. The webinar participants are involved in the formation of new trust measures. These measures involve exploring algorithms for detecting trust markers in research manuscripts and labeling articles with measures of their adherence to scholarly standards. These measures have implications for developing critical information skills in educational curricula and how can libraries and publishers work together to teach and cultivate vital skills necessary for today's academic success. There’s a place, then, for new approaches, and new information standards, to ensure that research is a source of trusted information to which the public and researchers can turn with greater assurance. Join us to explore ways that stakeholders are contributing to greater access and fostering a diverse, equitable, and inclusive environment for elevating learning and integrity around the circulation of research. 

Confirmed speakers include Leslie McIntosh, VP, Research Integrity, Digital Science; Jodi Schneider, PhD Informatics, Associate Professor, University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign; John Willinsky, Professor Emeritus, Stanford University and Founder, Public Knowledge Project.

The program is being coordinated by NISO Education Committee Member Carolina Tanigushi, a Visual Programmer with SciELO.

NISO Open Teleconference

Open Teleconference June 2024 - ISO TC46 2024 update
Monday, June 17, 2024, 3:00pm - 4:00pm (Eastern Standard Time, US & Canada)

The topic for the June open teleconference will be a recap of the ISO TC 46 Plenary meeting "week," which was held in Berlin, Germany this year from May 20-24, with international participants connecting across multiple time zones for all associated meetings. Please join our exchange!

Todd Carpenter, NISO Executive Director and Keondra Bailey, NISO Assistant Standards Program Manager, will discuss the meeting, NISO's role there, and the current questions under consideration in TC 46 conversations. There are many international projects currently underway which have a relationship with and impact on standards work more locally in the United States library and information community. 

TC 46 is an ISO (International Organization for Standardization) technical committee, focused on Information and Documentation. Its scope includes standardization of practices relating to libraries, documentation and information centers, publishing, archives, records management, museum documentation, indexing and abstracting services, and information science. NISO is designated by ANSI to represent U.S. interests as the Technical Advisory Group (TAG) to TC46.

Five TC 46 Subcommittees hold plenary meetings during this block:

  • SC 4 (Technical interoperability),
  • SC 8 (Quality - Statistics and performance evaluation),
  • SC 9 (Identification and description),
  • SC 10 (Requirements for document storage and conditions for preservation),
  • SC 11 (Archives/records management),

along with meetings of other subcommittee working and discussion groups and of course the final TC 46 plenary. 

NISO also serves as the Secretariat for SC 9, with Todd Carpenter serving as the SC 9 Committee Manager.
