Standards: NISO Announces Three New Projects (Content Migrations, Badging Scheme, Onology Standard)

Below, announcements from the National Information Standards Organization (NISO) about three new projects.2019-01-16_16-10-58

Project 1: Recommended Practices Around Content Platform Migrations

Recommended Practices Around Content Platform Migrations, to provide a standard process and recommendations to all parties dealing with online content platforms, which would improve communication both before, during, and after migration. A new working group will develop guidelines and checklists for publishers, vendors, and libraries to streamline the process and ensure that all content is supplied smoothly. Those who are interested in participating on this working group should contact NISO Associate Director of Programs, Nettie Lagace, at nlagace@niso.org.

Project 2: Badging Scheme for Reproducibility in the Computational and Computing Sciences

Recommended Practice: Toward a Compatible Taxonomy, Definitions, and Recognition Badging Scheme for Reproducibility in the Computational and Computing Sciences. As publishers and researchers are placing greater emphasis on the practice of reproducibility as an essential ingredient of the scientific research process, it is critical to make compatible the taxonomies used to define the various levels of reproducibility and to agree on a standardized badging scheme that can be applied in the publishing process.  This project will forge agreement and move toward a common vocabulary, focusing on standardization across the Computational and Computing Sciences. Those who are interested in participating on this working group should contact NISO Associate Director of Programs, Nettie Lagace, at nlagace@niso.org.

Project 3: Standards-Specific Ontology Standard

This working group will develop and standardize a high-level standards ontology that describes a limited set of core concepts and relationships, beginning with a component to define standards’ lifecycle states. This will facilitate use, create deeper, more consistent discovery/navigation, and set a foundation for other semantic application, such as linked data, in the standards ecosystem. Those who are interested in participating on this working group should contact NISO Associate Director of Programs, Nettie Lagace, at nlagace@niso.org.
