About the Webinar

There has been a significant rise in the inclusion of supplemental data and materials in the scholarly publication process over the last several years, creating challenges for publishers, libraries, repository managers, and users regarding the management, discovery, and use of these supplements. While online environments create new opportunities for sharing such data, the community must come to some agreement on how to balance the values and benefits behind the inclusion of supplemental data with the resources required for its management and use. This webinar, Part 1 of a two-part NISO series on data, will address the definition of supplemental data, discuss how it may affect the peer review and publication process, and show examples of how information services are handling their accessibility.

NISO/NFAIS Supplemental Journal Article Materials Project
Linda Beebe, Senior Director, PsycINFO at American Psychological Association
The NISO/NFAIS Supplemental Journal Article Materials Project, a joint project between NISO and NFAIS (the National Federation of Advanced Information Services) aims to develop a Recommended Practice for publisher inclusion, handling, display, and preservation of supplemental journal article materials. Ms. Beebe will provide an update on the project, describing how recommendations related to syntax, linking, interoperability, markup, and metadata created by a Business Working Group are being addressed by a Technical Working Group.

Supplemental material and the Summon™ web-scale discovery service
Mike Buschman, Director, Product Management, Serials Solutions
