COAR Announces Launch of the “Notify Project”
COAR is pleased to announce the launch of a new project, Notify: The Repositories and Services Interoperability Project.
This project builds on previous work of COAR to advance the vision first outlined in the COAR Next Generation Repositories Initiative – to position repositories as the foundation for a distributed, globally networked infrastructure for scholarly communication, on top of which layers of value added services will be deployed – and further articulated in the Pubfair White Paper, which describes a distributed framework for open publishing services.
In 2020, COAR published a generic technical model to enable the linking of preprints and other repository resources with external services, with an initial focus on peer review services. The technical model – which was developed based on a number of use cases provided by preprint servers, repositories, peer review services and overlay journals – applies a distributed, message-oriented approach based on W3C Linked Data Notifications (LDN).
