Abstract

Based on a briefing session given at the 30th UKSG Conference, Warwick, April 2007

Institutional identifiers are nothing new. The problem in the e-content world is that there is no single schema that covers all the identifiers needed. Previous identifiers have been for physical location purposes which are no longer relevant for new groupings. Publishers now need to know exactly who their customers are and the customers need to be able to identify themselves and their ‘licensing unit’ to the publishers and other members of the journal supply chain. A Journal Supply Chain Pilot including the major participants in the supply chain started in 2006 and is continuing to look at the identifiers, metadata and transactions that take place in the supply chain.
