Global scholarly communication is conducted mostly in English, and standardization of metadata for journal articles has also been based on English. On the other hand, with increasingly diverse sources of information being widely disseminated and advances in automatic translation technology, the distribution of information in languages other than English is also booming.

In this session, participants from DOI registration agencies that play an important role in the distribution of metadata, as well as from organizations that conduct activity related to multilingual information dissemination, will gather to share perspectives on the status of promoting the distribution of information in non-Roman character systems and discuss how to proceed in the future.
