Key points

  • Our collective authorship and publishing practices do not always end up ensuring that scholarly content is discoverable by readers.
  • Readers of all kinds rely on a variety of ‘discovery pathways’, such as search engines, library systems, and various electronic links, some of which are blind to the content they desire.
  • Efforts over the years to improve content discoverability have made great progress, but an increasing amount of freely available content brings up new issues.
  • The National Information Standards Organization (NISO)’s Discovery to Delivery (D2D) Topic Committee has developed a grid comparing various ways in which content is shared with various ways in which users discover such content.
  • This article brings to light a few of the current obstacles and opportunities for innovation by publishers, aggregators, search engines, and library systems, and invites Learned Publishing readers to step up and identify others."
