Moderated by : Todd Carpenter
Location: Harlem (7th Floor) Level:

Standards impact publishing in a variety of ways, from content formats such as .epub, NLM DTD, and other XML styles; to identifiers for content and subscribers, to interoperability, metadata, search and authentication. There is a variety of ongoing work at the national and international levels that will impact-hopefully improve-the publishing community. This roundtable will explore these projects.

Among the projects that will be discussed are the International Standards Text Code, the International Standard Name Identifier, the DOI, work on improving single-sign-on authentication, improving metadata transfer, and document authenticity.
