The Open Annotation Data Model specifies an interoperable framework for creating associations between related resources - Annotations - using a methodology that conforms to the Architecture of the World Wide Web. Open Annotations can easily be shared between platforms, with sufficient richness of expression to satisfy complex requirements while remaining simple enough to also allow for the most common use cases, such as attaching a piece of text to a single web resource. In this presentation we will discuss the data model, motivated by scholarly communication use cases for annotation. These include open peer review, nano-publications, personal note-taking, teaching and learning systems, resource organization and many others. We will also discuss the current status of the work, and the next steps in the standardization process.
