Schneider to discuss problem citations at Crossref LIVE18

Jodi Schneider, Assistant Professor

Assistant Professor Jodi Schneider will present her research at Crossref LIVE18, which will be held November 13-14 in Toronto, Canada. CrossRef is a cooperative membership organization of over 11,000 scholarly publishers from 118 countries. The theme for this year's meeting is "How good is your metadata?"

Schneider will give the talk, "Trouble at the Academy: Problem Citations," in which she discusses the need for publishers to take an active role in monitoring and tracking faulty, retracted research.

"Retracted papers should be clearly marked everywhere they appear, but today that is not the case," she said. "I'm asking publishers to clearly mark retracted papers; alert authors who have already cited a retracted paper; and before publishing an article, check its bibliography for retracted papers. Science builds directly upon past work, so we need to be sure that we are building upon a solid foundation and not faulty research. Checking for citations to retracted articles, and limiting future citations, can help science self-correct by shoring up its foundations."

Schneider studies science of science through the lens of arguments, evidence, and persuasion. She is developing linked data (ontologies, metadata, Semantic Web) approaches to manage scientific evidence. She holds a PhD in informatics from the National University of Ireland, Galway. Prior to joining the iSchool in 2016, Schneider served as a postdoctoral scholar at the National Library of Medicine, University of Pittsburgh, and INRIA, the national French Computer Science Research Institute.
