Annotating All Knowledge Coalition: Developing an open, interoperable annotation layer over all scholarly and scientific works
In the last few years a growing community has been working to change that. Their goal is to standardize “annotation” as a unit of conversation built into the very fabric of the Web. In late 2014 the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), the standards body for the Web, established a formal Working Group to support thisstandards effort. Much progress has been made, and many implementations are now mature enough to be deployed. So, in order to bring this capability to the areas where new knowledge is created and published, the coalition has assembled some of the world’s most essential scholarly publishers and knowledge platforms. The Annotating All Knowledge Coalition ( currently comprises over 60 different organizations. Coalition members realize that a robust and interoperable conversation layer can transform scholarship, enabling personal note taking, peer review, copy editing, post publication discussion, journal clubs, classroom uses, automated classification, deep linking, and much more. They understand that this layer must evolve as an open, interoperable, and shared capability aligned with the motivations and interests of scholars and researchers. They are agreeing to collaborate openly with their peers, to share experiences, and to work together towards mutual objectives.
