The Metadata 2020 project - Sign the Pledge

Join over 100 organizations and 170 individuals in signing the metadata pledge. Show your commitment to support richer metadata in your community.

Metadata 2020 was conceived in late 2017 with the goal of rallying and supporting the community around the critical issue of sharing richer metadata for research communications. It’s mission? To advocate for richer, connected and reusable metadata for all outputs because:

  • Richer metadata fuels discoverability and innovation
  • Connected metadata bridges the gaps between systems and communities
  • Reusable metadata eliminates duplication of effort

The founders of the initiatives recognized that when we settle for inadequate metadata, none of these results are possible, and everyone using research outputs will suffer as a consequence.
