Article Sharing Framework Workshop

Simple Content Sharing — consistent with publisher policies.

Together at last: STM’s Article Sharing Framework (ASF) offers us the technical processes that enable content sharing in ways that are simple and seamless, yet compliant with the EU Digital Single Market Directive. Ah, technology.

At a glance, ASF serves to:

  • Enable content sharing in ways that are simple and seamless, yet consistent with publisher policies
  • Provide publishers the flexibility to update sharing policies over time
  • Provide platforms a means to automatically determine content sharing conditions in real-time
  • Define a set of machine identifiable sharing policies, greatly simplifying implementation for both publishers and reading platforms.

Join us to learn more in this free-to-attend workshop. It's designed to be interactive and let’s-get-our-hands-dirty kind of session to support publishers + platforms planning to implement the Framework. We will listen, explain, and address any questions and/or concerns anyone may have. Learn more here.

"ACS decided to be an early adopter of the ASF for several reasons. Researchers and commercial content sharing platforms often seek clarity on what sharing is permitted. While Open Access articles usually convey information about allowed reuse and sharing through consistent and standard methods, a void existed for communicating similar sharing policies for other content that is not considered Open Access. Also, Article 17 of the new EU Copyright Directive provided an opportunity for ACS to make “relevant and necessary information” about sharing policies available to online platforms in an automated way. By making article sharing policy information freely available from a central repository (i.e., Crossref), multiple content sharing platforms can easily receive consistent and current sharing policy information. This, in turn, can enable researchers to have more confidence in, and spend less time on, determining where and how they can share research articles."
