There is only one way to avoid criticism: do nothing, say nothing, and be nothing.

Have your say

Crossref strives for balance. Different people want different things from us. As we prepare for our 20th year of operation, please join this unique meeting to help shape the future of Crossref.

With a smaller group than usual, we’re dedicating this year’s annual meeting to hear what you value about Crossref. Which initiatives would you put first and/or last? Where would you have us draw the line between mission and ambition? What is โ€œcoreโ€ for you? How could/should we adapt for the future in order to meet your needs?

There won’t be any plenary talks about trends in scholarly communications, but instead workshop-style activities to help hone our strategy, do some scenario planning, and prioritize goals together, as a community.

Research is global, and supporting a diverse global community is a challenge. Come and have your say.


LIVE18 in Toronto, November 13-14, 2018

The theme of LIVE18 was How good is your metadata? where Crossref staff and invited speakers inspired us with their metadata tales of woe and wonder. It was two full days packed with a mixture of plenary sessions, the results of our members’ newly elected board members, and interactive activities.

LIVE17 in Singapore, November 14-15, 2017

We focused on the theme of Metadata + Relations + Infrastructure = Context. We had our fullest program yet, with the broadest representation yet - researchers, editors, journal and book people, publishing execs, librarians, and funders. We talked a lot about relationships: between metadata; between research outputs; and between the scholarly community.
