SHARE’s first project is the SHARE Notification Service. It aims to notify interested stakeholders when research release events occur, including the publication of articles and the dissemination of research data. The SHARE Notification Service will distribute these notifications, in the form of a concise set of metadata (fields might include ORCID, grant number, DOI(s), and agency IDs) to stakeholders such as funding agencies, sponsored research offices, institutional repositories, and disciplinary repositories. It will also provide a record of these notifications that can be queried by researchers and others in preparing faculty tenure review materials, creating progress reports, or doing compliance checks.
In short, the SHARE Notification Service will let interested parties know when research release events occur in a timely, structured, and comprehensive manner.
