NISO Launches New Projects to Improve Communication Around Content Platform Migrations, Taxonomies

Jan 17, 2019


The National Information Standards Organization (NISO) Voting Members have approved a new project, 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 between stakeholders before, during, and after migration. NISO is now forming a working group; community members with experience in aspects of content migration are invited to engage in the creation of this Recommended Practice to better guide publishers, vendors, and libraries.

Additionally, NISO Voting Members have approved a project to develop a recommended practice pertaining to reproducibility in the computational and computing sciences. This work will examine existing taxonomies and badging schemes to define various levels of reproducibility and communicate these in the publishing process. Stakeholders, including publishers and not-for-profit societies in the engineering and computing sciences fields, industry associations, and academic libraries are invited to participate in the working group that is now starting up.

Those interested in participating in either working group now being formed should contact NISO Associate Director of Programs, Nettie Lagace, at nlagace@niso.org. NISO is seeking participation in this working group by publishers, vendors, and the academic community.

NISO, based in Baltimore, MD, fosters the development and maintenance of standards that facilitate the creation, persistent management, and effective interchange of information so that it can be trusted for use in research and learning. To fulfill this mission, NISO engages libraries, publishers, information aggregators, and other organizations that support learning, research, and scholarship through the creation, organization, management, and curation of knowledge.

NISO works with intersecting communities of interest and across the entire lifecycle of information standards. NISO is a not-for-profit association accredited by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI). For more information, visit the NISO website.
