At the beginning of this year the board adopted a new mission statement. Creating the new mission statement involved a lot of discussion and compromise but its very important because the board does look to the mission statement to guide its work and discussions so I wanted to go through it in a little bit of detail today and explain the thinking behind it. First of all – you’ll notice that there is nothing in the mission about reference linking or DOIs. The mission is broad on purpose – reference linking is one particular service and DOIs are a tool to help the service work.
Good morning – I’d like to thank the committee for giving me the chance to present CrossCheck - it’s an honor to be shortlisted along with the other great projects. I’ll give an overview of the CrossCheck initiative and highlight how it is innovative in addressing a problem confronting the scholarly publishing industry.
So CrossRef has set up CrossCheck as cross-publisher service that uses innovative business arrangements to make screening scholarly content for plagiarism feasible and effective. One main point I’d like to make today is that CrossCheck is not just about technology – it’s a multi-pronged initiative involving many different organizations.
It has become increasingly difficult for publishers to ensure the originality of content that they publish. With increasing numbers of submissions and the ease of cutting and pasting on the internet there is a sense that plagiarism is a growing problem. There have been a few high profile cases and while there is actually little hard data about the level of plagiarism we have definitely heard from publishers that it is a big issue. From the publishers point of view even a small amount of plagiarism can undermine the trust and authority of scholarly journals.
So to give a quick overview of how the service works I’ll start with briefly describing how plagiarism detection works.
First of all – no technology can actually detect plagiarism. It’s better to describer the technology as a text matching system.
Of course, plagiarism implies intent and at the moment at least, computers can’t infer human intent.
The PD process: 1) You have a manuscript that you want to check 2) You need some documents to check it against
2) You submit it to the PD system, which breaks the text up into small chunks and creates a “fingerprint” for the document. 3) It then searches a database of content to see if the fingerprints are shared by any of the documents already added to the database 4) The PD system then produces an “originality report” which shows the “percentage overlap” between documents. This report has to be *interpreted* by the person checking the document- and that is where the real work is.
The PD system will allow you to compare the document you are checking with database documents that share the same fingerprint. So the submitted manuscript is on the left and the database “hit” is on the right. The similar passages are highlighted. The similarity might be due to: 0) An attempt at plagiarism 1) Incorrect citation 2) Acceptable or unacceptable “self-plagiarism” 3) Reverse plagiarism (e.g. somebody copied an early manuscript and got it published first) 4) Coincidence 5) Acceptable copying...For instance...
Now I want to talk about the importance of databases – and this is where the innovative nature of CrossCheck really comes into play.
Remember the database? This is the critical part of the equation. If it doesn’t hold relevant data, it isn’t going to be helpful to you. This
And this is where CrossRef can immediately help- we represent the vast majority of people who can provide the relevant data. Prior to CrossCheck there was a chicken and egg situation. No PD detection system vendor had enough full text scholarly content indexed to make it worthwhile for an individual publisher to participate and no one publisher – not even Elsevier had enough content to “go it alone” (note that above is not meant to imply that those titles/publishers have agreed to participate- it is just meant ot illustrate relevant content.)
So part a main focus of the CrossCheck service is to build the database – to get publishers to participate in CrossCheck. When publishers sign up to participate in CrossCheck there are obligations that they take on -
Now this is where the technology comes in. CrossRef has partnered with iParadigms – creators of the Turnitin and iThenticate services – the market leaders in plagiarism detection software at the undergraduate and secondary school level. Prior to CrossCheck they faced the same problem as publishers faced in the old days of “bilateral link agreements”. You don’t want there to have to be negotiations between N publishers under N terms, etc. Very inefficient. So publishers can’t do this on their own and PD vendors can’t do this on their own.
CrossRef brings multiple publishers into system under consistent terms, etc. and help to create that all-important database.
Commercial PD systems (e.g. iParadigms) can support multiple specialized databases. Now it’s very important to note that iParadigms is the exclusive provider for CrossCheck for a limited time. In future it will be possible to have multiple PD providers. This flexibility will give the industry the ability to adopt any new services or technologies that come along.

CrossCheck An innovative, collaborative service Ed Pentz Executive Director CrossRef
CrossCheck <ul><li>A cross-publisher service, based on innovative business agreements and licenses, that makes screening scholarly content for plagiarism feasible and effective </li></ul>
Plagiarism: From a Latin word meaning “to kidnap”… the unauthorized use or close imitation of the language and thoughts of another author and the representation of them as one's own original work
Document to check Database of potential source documents
Text fingerprinting: a target document broken into short, normalized substrings which are then compared against a database of pre-indexed documents; originality report issued - must be interpreted by a human being
submitted manuscript on left, database “hit” on right; similarities highlighted. Textual overlap might be due to: plagiarism attempt, incorrect citation, “self-plagiarism”, reverse plagiarism (when somebody copies an earlier manuscript but gets published first), coincidence, acceptable re-use Duplication of bibliographies is perfectly legitimate; a valid pre-print may exist; or a math paper might legitimately contain lots of quoted material and only a few lines of original text -- say, in the context of completing or extending a proof, etc.
Database as critical limiting factor; if it doesn’t hold the relevant pre-indexed content, you are PD checking in vain
CrossRef has records for 30+ million scholarly articles, books, theses, conference proceedings, etc., registered
Depositor CrossCheck Terms of Participation Must make available content on an ongoing basis in a timely manner. Content must be made available within no more than 7 days of online publication. Must deposit full, correct and current metadata along with DOIs including article title and all authors. Must make available full text of content to other CrossCheck participants Users of the service who are not CrossRef members who are participating in CrossCheck will only see snippets of text with a DOI link to the publisher full text. May not submit content to be checked until substantially all their own content is in the CrossCheck database. "CrossCheck Deposited": To be displayed on articles or other content to indicate that the item has been deposited into CrossCheck Deposited
PD vendors would have a tough time building such a database on their own…
