What problem is SHARE Notify attempting to solve?

Funding agencies, sponsored research offices at universities, institutional and disciplinary repositories, and other interested parties have found it difficult to keep abreast of the release of publications, datasets, and other results of scholarly research. Across the disciplines, principal investigators and other scholars do not have any single, structured way to report on these releases in a timely and comprehensive manner. SHARE Notify is a higher education–based initiative to strengthen efforts to identify, discover, and track research outputs.
