Abstract


This meeting will explore reinvigorating the Literature Interest Group, reworking the charge for the IG. (http://www.tdwg.org/activities/literature/) and expand the scope to include discussion of methods, actions and standards for working with literature in the context of TDWG standards. Examples of areas of discussion include DOIs (Digital Object Identifiers) as applied to literature for use in citations of literature in other taxonomic databases; and bibliometrics for biodiversity literature to assist authors in documenting the use of research for impact assessment.
