SHARE Notify is developing a simple way for sources to push reports about individual research release events to the service. Knowing that some sources won’t have the wherewithal to add these push reports to their platforms, SHARE Notify will also be capable of harvesting reports from sources. In the case of harvests, SHARE Notify will use existing standards to collect metadata from the source and will itself assemble event reports from that metadata. When a data source registers with SHARE Notify it will specify which method of reporting it prefers and supply relevant connection information.
