Of likely interest to many of the participants in this group is the new
Research Object for Scholarly Communication group announced below.  They
don't intend to build specifications, but instead to work with groups such
as ours to ensure the use cases are covered.

Dear all,

We are proud to announce the launch of the W3C Research Object for
Scholarly Communication (ROSC) Community Group [1] (#rosc).

The primary goal of the Community Group is to provide a platform for
scholars, librarians, publishers, archivists and policy makers to exchange
requirements and expectations for supporting a new form of scholarly
communication, i.e. making the actual research assets available as
first-class objects to enable better reuse and reproduce of research
results and knowledge.

We aim to discuss and produce various documents on use cases, requirements,
survey of related work, and best practice guidelines to facilitate the
realisation of the new form of scholarly communication.

The Community Group is open to all. More details can be found also in our
charter page [2]. Hope to see you there!
