Everyone in the scholarly communications community has a vested interest in enhancing and improving shared metadata in order to make scholarly content even more discoverable.
Enriched metadata is fundamental to the improvement of publication and dataset linkage, and ultimately, to effective discovery. A group of organizations from all over the world have come together to rally the community around this critical issue in scholarly communications: sharing richer metadata. Metadata 2020 is a community effort to jointly advance the quality of Metadata in scholarly works for the benefit of researchers, funders, publishers, service providers, and librarians.

This panel discussion and workshop provides insight into the current challenges with improving metadata and opportunities that improvements present. Speakers outline some of these opportunities, demonstrate the uses of rich metadata, discuss some of the current limitations, and suggest ways that different communities within scholarly communications can commit to improving metadata. Representatives from research faculty, libraries, publishers, service providers, funders, and new initiatives present their perspectives, and engage attendees in a larger discussion about how we might better work together and improve communication to improve metadata in a way that will be most useful to the community.

Working together we can build on existing efforts to make research more discoverable.
