New Crossref Strategy Through 2025 Released

From a Crossref Blog Post by Ginny Hendricks:

Over the last year or so we have had our heads down addressing how to scale our 20-yr-old system and operation – and adapting to new ways of working. But we’ve also spent time talking to people, forging alliances, looking ahead, and making plans. So we’re happy to now let everyone know exactly what we’ve been up to lately, what we are heading towards in 2025, and what projects and programs are prioritised on our near-term agenda.

  • Introducing the new Crossref strategy through 2025, extending the one we published in 2018
  • There are now two additional strategic goals, to make six: bolstering our team; living up to POSI
  • Good progress has been made in reducing operational and technical debt – a lot of learning too
  • We’re unblocking stuff to get more done, including expanding R&D (more on that next week)
  • We have a new public roadmap 🎉
  • Come to next week’s mid-year update webinar to hear what’s happening and up next.
