Restricted or open meeting: 


Intended audience: 

Information Specialists, Tech owners, anyone who is interested in the life cycle of reference in our ecosystem of tools


Duplicated effort is made to make sure the references are correct and updated wherever they are in the publication process and whichever tool they are used in. The aim of this meeting is to generate ideas about how the lifecycle of references for studies should look like in the future. Below are some ideas that could be discussed during the meeting: - Removing the manual step of sending references to authors - Centralizing all editing of references to the CRS which would require a feedback system from authors and editors in other tools. - Making one instance of a reference the master - Studifying references in the CRS and sharing more information related to the reference between reviews
