With millions of research outputs published each year, discoverability has become a huge challenge. The on-going pandemic has made this problem even more evident. Since the outbreak of the coronavirus, we have witnessed an explosion of scientific publications and data related to it, and researchers struggle to stay on top of this knowledge. In this session, we will explore the causes and effects of this discoverability crisis and how we can overcome it going forward. We will discuss these issues with an international panel of experts from research, research support and scholarly infrastructure. The panel will be interactive with ample time for questions and comments from the audience.
