Fund Ref: A Funder-Publisher Collaboration
Sharon M. Jordan

Begun as a pilot project in March 2012, the FundRef initiative responded to the need to provide improved collection and display of funder attribution for research reported in scholarly publications. The pilot, facilitated by CrossRef, included seven publishers and four funding agencies working collaboratively toward a community-wide solution. Having demonstrated feasibility during the pilot, a final report with findings and recommendations was very recently issued, and the CrossRef board approved moving forward with implementation of FundRef as a CrossRef service.

Our New Customer Relationships: What do they expect?
This session will explore the new and changing roles and behaviors of our customers. Research will be presented postulating how customer behavior and expectations vary between roles (librarian, author, editor) and by specialty.  The speakers, representing various customer roles, will respond to those postulates and offer additional insights into their expectations as customers, challenging publishers to meet those needs in new and creative ways.
