Why is SHARE tackling notifications as its first step?

SHARE Notify solves a key problem experienced by a variety of research stakeholders—the difficulty of knowing what research outputs are being produced in a timely and comprehensive manner. Development of SHARE Notify will enable the community to address such issues as metadata standards and information-sharing protocols that will facilitate greater collaboration across institutions and repositories. This, in turn, will make it easier to capture research outputs, make them discoverable, and allow the community to build off of them.
