Emerald among first to join Open Discovery Initiative

ODI checklist helps publishers like Emerald convey exactly what they are doing to increase the discoverability of their content

Bingley, United Kingdom, 10 August 2017 – Emerald Publishing has become one of the first academic publishers to release a set of checklists detailing what it is doing to make the content it publishes easier to find.

The NISO Open Discovery Initiative (ODI) checklist helps publishers convey, in a standard format, exactly what they are doing to increase the discoverability of their content.

Emerald has also recently published checklists detailing what it does for each of its three main products: Books, Journals and Case Studies. 

These checklists include information about Abstracting and indexing (A&I), social media and metadata. Emerald is also working on a fourth checklist, covering its discovery-related activities for Open Access (OA) content, which it plans to release shortly.

Mike Roberts, Content Discovery Manager at Emerald Publishing, said: “We’re glad to be one of the first publishers to have signed up to the ODI checklist, in line with our commitment to working with partners to increase the discoverability of our content and continually improving the experience of authors, readers and librarians when interacting with us and our content.”

The checklists can be found here:
